Having grown up on a farm in upstate New York, I spent most of my waking hours in the woods, pastures, and barn and sometimes practicing organ and piano. I began playing in church in the 7th grade, later attended The College of St. Rose for a BS and MFA in music at
the University of Buffalo. Twenty years ago, following my husband’s job, we left NY for WI.
Called to use my gifts in the life and song of the church, I also passionately pursue my love of nature, wildlife, gardening, and planting trees; birding and hiking, reading, cooking and trying to live sustainably with zero waste and doing all of that, with my family; my husband, Marty, of 40 years, my six children and their partners, and my three grandchildren.
I love the great hymn tradition of the Lutheran Church and my new favorite is ELW #739. “Touch the earth lightly, use the earth gently, nourish the life of the world in our care…Christ reconnect us, using us gently, and making us one.” - text by Jaroslav J. Vajda
