I have four children: Wayne, Cody, Michael, and Elizabeth. We usually attend the 9:00am service on Sunday mornings.
I am a cradle-Episcopalian, and was baptized at Christ Church in Charlottesville, Virginia. I grew up in Peoria, Illinois, attending first All Saint‘s, and then St. Paul‘s Cathedral. I graduated from the University of Southern California. After graduation, I was married, and lived in Kailua, Hawaii, Peoria, where Wayne was born, and Omaha, before moving to Arizona for five years, where Cody, Michael & Elizabeth were born. We returned to Omaha about 11 years ago, and I was divorced shortly thereafter. I am the Employee Relations Specialist at Applied Underwriters.
We attended St. Andrew‘s for a year before moving to Arizona, and then came back after returning to Omaha, so we‘ve been members for about 12 years. We‘ve been involved with Sunday School, SAY, the Prayer Shawl Group and Daughters of the King. My boys have been to Pine Ridge a few times, and we even have the cat who was found in Gordon on Wayne‘s first trip. Michael and Lizzie have joined SAY this year and are eager to have their turns at Pine Ridge.
My family is scattered across the country, but I feel so blessed to have my Church family right here. We love St. Andrew‘s and I am so excited and honored to have a chance to serve on the Vestry.
