I live in Woodbury with my husband and two sons. I also teach middle school language arts at Mounds Park Academy in St. Paul. When I am not teaching, I love to garden, run, read, and travel as much as possible. I am not a fan of winter, so when the weather is nice, I am outside! When it is cold, I hunker down! I believe I have the gift of service, and I use this gift in a variety of settings in and out of my church.
