I am a graduate of Augsburg College with a major in accounting. I worked in a variety of accounting positions for Pillsbury for almost 16 years and Jostens for another two years before joining the staff of St. Andrew, overseeing the business side of the church. It didn’t take long to feel the pull to ordained ministry. After 9 years of attending seminary on a part-time basis while continuing my work at St. Andrew, I graduated and was eventually ordained and called to St. Andrew. My experience and undergraduate education made Stewardship and Evangelism a good fit for me. My husband Jim and I now live in Rogers, MN after having lived in Chanhassen for almost 30 years. We have two grown children, Adam and Kaitlin, and a golden retriever, Rylee. Jim and I have a cabin in northern Minnesota where we enjoy spending time outdoors fishing, walking in the woods and a little golf. When it’s cold or raining, I really enjoy cozying up to the fire and doing a little cross-stitch.
