I was born and raised in Amery, Wisconsin. After a college internship in Richmond, I had a desire to move to Virginia and was fortunate to end up in Charlottesville in 2006. I started attending Christ Church shortly after and was warmly welcomed by the message of grace and love. I was confirmed here in 2008. My husband, Paul, and I met in Charlottesville and were married in 2011 at Buck Mountain Episcopal Church in Earlysville (the church was under renovations then). We typically attend the 7:45 service with our 2 children, Jane and Keith. We love to travel and explore the Blue Ridge Mountains. I am currently the controller at a local winery.
