Mar 2010, I started working for O'Fallon First UMC. I felt honored knowing this mission would use my God-given gift of accounting to help the church with their financial needs. Accounting has always been a passion of mine, and I feel God put me in this place with a purpose to help others.
Following a stroke in 2011, I wasn’t sure of God’s plan, but as Philippians 4:13 says “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.” I knew God must not be finished with me yet because He gave me the strength and determination to rehab, and work my way back. He allowed me to continue my work, making a difference for O'Fallon First. It was not an easy journey, but one I that has been very beneficial.
My husband, Paul and I were married in 1987. We followed the Army for 20 years and he retired in 2007. We have 2 daughters, Danielle and Melissa, a son-in-law, Kevin Schaefer and a grand dog, Sadie.
