My husband, Jim, and I have been members of North Oaks since 1990. I am originally from Clarkston and after graduating from CMU with a B.S. in elementary education, Jim and I married and made our home here together. We have two wonderful grown daughters and a son-in-law. As a family, we experienced private Christian schools, home schooled for 6 years and then public schools. Each experience was the right one at the time for our family. I have volunteered in children’s ministry at North Oaks as long as I have been here. In January of 2012, I was hired on as staff as the Director of Children’s Ministry and Ministry Coordinator. I love the Lord, My God, will all my heart, my soul and my strength and I love ministering to children and their families. Jim and I enjoy serving the Lord together at North Oaks as well as hiking, biking, exploring and traveling to see our daughters whenever possible.
