I grew up in Westfield, went to Indiana University and graduated with a business degree. I worked for EDS for 19 years as a computer programmer then project manager. While working in Anderson with EDS, I met my husband, Charlie. We were married in 2002 at Union Chapel United Methodist Church. We moved to Westfield and began looking for a new church home. We found that home when we came to St. Mark’s. When our son Matthew was born in 2009, I “retired” from my career. While Matthew was attending St. Mark’s Preschool, a position came open on the St. Mark’s staff. I was happy join staff as the Pastor and Project Support. I am now back to using my technical skills as the Information Technology staff for St. Mark’s.
