What brought you to Augustana?

I moved into the neighborhood and wanted a church that was telling and showing the love of Christ to the community.


What inspires you?

People inspire me. The ordinary kindness and service of regular people make such a difference in the world.


What have you learnt about your faith and God recently?

I have learned that God loves surprises. I never thought I would be teaching children, but God had other ideas for me, so here I am on staff as the Christian Education coordinator.


What is one thing that people would be surprised to know about you?

That I teach Tai Chi, Moving for Better Balance


What’s your biggest challenge?

Saying no, because I love to help and love so many things and people.
