I am a wife (to Preston), mom (to two sons and a daughter, and their spouses) and grandmother (to five grandsons and six granddaughters). I'm a native of Edgerton, Minnesota and attended Calvin College many years ago. Since moving to Hudsonville, Michigan 30 years ago I've been a member of Georgetown Christian Reformed Church, where I was on staff from 2000-2006. Before that I worked in the office at Hudsonville Christian Middle School for 12 years. Since 2006 I've been working for the CRCNA denomination in the Office of Pastor-Church Relations. My focus is non-ordained church staff.
I love to garden (vegetables) and make salsa using many of the vegetables I've grown. I love all kinds of sports. I like to knit and I play the organ at church.
