Trinity is a wonderful group of people who seek ways to live out their faith in Christ through everyday acts of kindness. It is a great joy to serve as their pastor. We'd love to have you join us for worship any Sunday!
Here's a bit of background about me. I was born and raised in rural southern Wisconsin. The experience of growing up in the country instilled in me a love for creation and the Creator. My local church nurtured in me a love for Jesus and his teachings, along with the joy of gathering with friends and neighbors of all ages to sing and worship together, and to visit and share meals together.
I have always enjoyed teaching children and youth. After graduating from Orfordville's Parkview High School, I worked as a nursing assistant at Beloit Hospital for several years. In 1981, I graduated from Taylor University in Indiana with a degree in Christian Education and extra class work in Psychology and Early Childhood Education. During my years as Director of Christian Education and Youth at a church in Rockford, Illinois, I was commissioned as an Associate in Ministry of the ELCA. Upon completing a Masters of Divinity degree from Wartburg Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa, I was ordained in 1991 and began my first call at a two-point rural parish near La Crosse, Wisconsin. After several years serving congregations in Iowa, I was delighted to move back to Southern Wisconsin to live closer to family.
My husband Kevin grew up in Milwaukee and Rosholt, Wisconsin. He has worked with main frame computers in the insurance industry for over thirty years. Currently he is a computer program analyst for WPS in Madison, Wisconsin. Kevin loves pitching horseshoes, occasionally fishing, and watching sports. He has two sons, D.J., a teenager, and Andrew, a young adult. Kevin and I love living in Edgerton and being a part of this congregation. I also enjoy visiting my sisters and brother, and their families. My hobbies include paper crafts, flower gardening, feeding the birds, taking photographs of people and nature, and working on my family's genealogy.
