I was born in  California and lived in the small town of Rio Linda until I was 8 years old. My family then moved to Louisiana, where my father pastored his first church. I am married to Craig and  we are blessed to have three grown children and five grandchildren.  I found out that Verdigris United Methodist Church was looking for a secretary almost twenty years ago from my neighbor who attends here.  My life experience as a Pastor’s daughter, involvement in children’s ministry and daycare made this a good fit.  I feel so blessed to be involved in what God is doing through VUMC, and I am so excited to see how God continues to use Verdigris United Methodist Church for His glory in the future.
