Secretary

Fun Fact:  My parents blessed me with four brothers.  It took finding the right job to get Sisters -- and I got 109 of them. (I was the Communications Director for the Dominican Sisters of Great Bend)

Favorite Hobby/Activity:  I like cabin camping in State Parks with my dog Gus. I've enjoyed collecting dolls since childhood (I have over 500, several family heirlooms over 125 years old, but I also like to bring one home from places I travel to.)

Favorite Scripture: 23rd Psalm "1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.  2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.  3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.  5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.  6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever."
