About Me


I am a child of God, adopted by Him through the salvation work of Jesus, and lead by the Holy Spirit through His Word and Sacrament!

My Family

John and I were brought together by the Lord in 2015. We married in 2016 and joined our families together. His life adventure brought him to Iowa all the way from New Jersey when he began his new career as a nurse. We are blessed with three children who are making their way through high school. I am originally from Council Bluffs, Iowa.  We enjoy making Atkins our home!

My Hobbies

I enjoy reading middle school novels, going hiking, playing games, and watching my kids in their activities.  I also like to travel to see my family.
