I have been the Executive Secretary since April 2011. I schedule meetings for the Senior Pastor, the Administrator, and for various staff functions. I help coordinate details for conferences, take minutes at meetings, (staff and Annual Meeting, etc.). I send out notices to Church Council and other groups regarding meetings. I register brides to be married at Naz, communicate wedding particulars to the bride/groom throughout the process, and coordinate the Annual Marriage Retreat held at Nazareth. I also schedule all events/meetings on the church calendar.
I received my degree in Journalism and Marketing in 1981, and have always had jobs where I was able to use my communication skills. I had a near-death experience in 2010 when I had a staph infection pending heart surgery at Mayo; this led me to re-evaluate my life and my career. Nazareth had an opening for a Secretary. God seemed to be leading me here to do something that mattered and enjoy my life more… and the rest is history!! My husband and I enjoy going to concerts together, whether those be Country concerts or Rock concerts! We enjoy traveling to nearby spots (and far away when able) and also eating at new places! I enjoy family get-togethers, playing cards, and going to movies! My favorite thing to do would be going to the beach or lake with family and/or friends and relaxing, playing games, and listening to music!
I feel very passionate about the weddings at Nazareth and helping the Bride/Groom to have the best experience as they plan their special day. I also feel passionate about being a “team player” with the amazing staff I am privileged to work with, and being hospitable to all who enter our church.
One of my favorite verses is…”Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.” Romans 12:12-13
