Meet the Pastor!
I feel blessed, privileged and occasionally overwhelmed to have been called to Word and Sacrament ministry in the ELCA. Parish ministry offers an amazing mix of joys, sorrows, challenges, and triumphs, all (thankfully!) led and sustained by the Holy Spirit. It is in and through the local congregation that lives are transformed, faith is deepened, and calls to various forms of work in God’s world are discerned. As a pastor, it’s amazing to have a front row seat to all of that, and more!
I began my ministry with Christus Lutheran in December 2012, having previously served with Grace Lutheran Church in Green Bay, Wis. and St. John Lutheran Church in Ashwaubenon, Wis. My credentials include an undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin – Madison (Go Badgers!) and a Master of Divinity degree from Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minn. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband, Corey, and our son, Marcus, as well as reading, exercising, playing with the pets, and knitting. Not all at once, of course!
Christus is a vibrant, welcoming community of faith; I feel blessed to be a part of it and I trust you will too.
