I love music of all kinds and lead worship at my church. I play piano, guitar, and flute. I also love sports. I played volleyball, basketball, and softball in school. I absolutely love disc golf and play with my entire family. We love to play board games and travel all over the US. My husband is from Monmouth, OR, so we spend a lot of time there visiting family. We lived in Joplin, MO for a couple of years, McMinnville, OR for 4 years, Shawnee/Kansas City for a 1.5 years, and Garnett for the last 14 years.
