I moved to Washington in 1986 and have been part of Northlake since. I starting volunteering right away wherever there was a need and then started to find what I loved, Kids! I was hired in 2002 as part of the Children’s Ministry Team. I can’t explain how honored I am that God would use me in these Children’s lives. I love being goofy with them and being the crazy one and seeing God doing a work in their lives as well as he continues to do one in mine. I married my husband Richard in 2012 and I love my Tall Guy! Together we have 7 children – Jacob, Amanda, Patrick, Samuel, Caleb, Madison and Owen. Watching our children marry and start having their own children is the coolest ever! Our son Sam has 2 boys, Silas and Chandler, they are just the sweetest and so much fun!
Where I am From
I was born in El Paso Texas. My dad was in the military so we moved around a lot. In my early teens, I moved to Missouri with my family and lived there till I was 20.
I love date nights with my honey, spending time with my family and watching our kids play sports. I love to watch and cheer anything they do! I love a great coffee shop and visiting with friends. I love to sew and make old things look new. My all-time favorite would be to cook or bake for my family and others. I love to create cupcakes that are crazy and taste yummy.
Where I’d Like to Travel
I honestly love to go anywhere! We visited Ireland recently, it was fun to see where parts of my family was from. I love Disneyland; the kid‘s rides are my favorite. Germany is on our list, my husband’s mother is from there. I love warm places with water so I’m always open to trying new places to go.
Ever since I was a child, I have loved tacos and I still do! Mexican food is my favorite. A close second is Thai food. Oh, and I love coffee, if that is a food?
