How did you end up at Westside Christian School?
When we moved to Wisconsin about two years ago, we looked around for a new church. After the first service here, we knew that St. Andrew would be our new church. We’ve been actively involved ever since. I have always wanted to work in a Christian school, so when I saw the needs at Westside I knew this was my chance. The Lord has blessed me with this opportunity!
What is your theme Bible verse?
Proverbs 3:6 “In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” I feel that this bible verse represents my life. God led me to choose UNI for college, which allowed me to find the love of my life, Brandon. We then decided to move to Wisconsin and God has richly blessed us in our endeavors. He led us to St. Andrew and we are forever grateful because we’ve meet a lot of great people and feel very much at home here.
