Grace, peace, and mercy, be to you from God our Father and from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Concordia has a rich history of blessings and challenges that by God's grace we move forward.   As a congregation, that is part of His Church, we need to remember and focus on His grace and every blessing that we may meet the challenges with faith and see how God is drawing us not only closer to Himself but to each other as well.  God's peace now and always.

I began working here at Concordia in 2008.  I have a wonderful husband, Michael and an amazing daughter, Amelia.

It is wonderful to get to work with such amazing people, get to know and help our congregation and have the priveledge to see all the young people who come through our school doors.  Getting to see God's work in both our school children who are just learning about Him and in our congregation, through the every day highs and lows as well as in the reassurance in their death, through His death and ressurection is truly a blessing.

Her greatest joy is when teachable moments occur.  It is at these times when students are open and receptive to whatever one can share with them.  This is particularly exciting when it relates to faith and the Gospel.
