I was born in Washington state and raised in Bismarck, ND, and as a consequence I love both the mountains and rain, and the flat prairie and wind! I live in West Fargo with my husband, Kevin, who is a teacher, and two sons, David and Michael. My first experience of First Lutheran was hearing Pastor James Bjorge preach about love during a Lenton service while I was in college. The inclusion I felt from the congregation during that time was wonderful and I’ve been a member ever since. It’s been a gift becoming a part of the staff. I have 16+ years as an executive assistant and I look forward to many more at First Lutheran.
