I am the youngest of six children. I have four sisters and one brother. I am married and have four children—three girls and one boy.

What hobbies, sports,
or extracurriculars interest you?

Tell us one thing about yourself
that most people don’t know.

I love to paint! I get totally wrapped up in it and it relaxes me. I wish I had more time to paint!

Which academic subjects especially interest you?

Symbolics, religion and I loved my children’s
literature class.

How did you first come to consider the public teaching or preaching ministry as a career?

I remember reading the story of the man born blind
(John 9). The man was healed and the people asked whether it was the man or his parents who had sinned and caused his affliction. Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him.” I realized that God uses us for His purpose. At the time I had been considering going back to school to become a teacher. When I found myself
here in Eau Claire I realized that I could put my desire
to teach together with my passion for religion.
I enrolled the next fall.

What have you appreciated most
about your time at ILC?

I have been thankful for the opportunity to grow in
grace as I have learned so much in my religion classes. I loved having chapel built into my days. I made some wonderful Christian friendships. The staff at ILC was caring, supportive and encouraging. We also had a lot of fun in my methods classes learning to teach, and critiquing each other.

What qualities do you think will most
be needed by the future leaders of the church?

Faith. Love. Empathy. Humility. Love for God and His Word.
