     I am the Administrative Assistant at Stone Ridge. I enjoy my job very much, mostly because of all the people I meet. I really get excited for Sunday mornings, meeting the new people that come through the doors.
I love the people that stop by my office during the week to just say "hi".  It is truly a joy for me to see people come to Jesus and grow in their relationship with Him.

     I grew up in a Christian home, I went to Sunday School and church every Sunday at a Presbyterian Church. I played the organ for church from jr. high through high school. I always believed in Jesus and accepted Christ in jr. high. It wasn't until I went to a Sunday School class on the book of Romans, at our church in Minnesota, that my eyes were truly opened. I realized how much Jesus desired a love relationship with me. We moved to Decorah in 1994, and I rededicated my life to Christ and was baptized in 1995.

     I married my husband, Mark, in July, 1980. We were high school sweethearts, and he is truly my rock. We enjoy getting together with friends and spending time with our family. I enjoy reading and playing piano. Mark likes to bike on the trails in town. We have two grown children a son, Jordan, and a daughter Kaylie & her husband Brent. They have a daughter Lakelyn. We love being grandparents!

    One of my favorite Bible verses is: Jer. 29:11 ~ "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
