My husband Mark and I have been at KGF for almost two years now and love what God is doing here! I have worked in Administration and Pastoral support since I was 15 with the exception of four years I spent at Prairie Bible College.

It is my desire to be a solid support to the Pastors here at KGF, allowing them to better do the ministry God has called them to.
