I am a Southwest Kansas native and love serving SW KS small towns. I am currently pastoring Lakin, KS. I obtained my bachelor’s in Religion and Philosophy through Friends University and did Course of Study through Saint Paul School of Theology.  My husband John Wesley, he goes by Wes, is also a pastor and serves Hugoton and Rolla, KS. We have been married for since 2021 and have two children, Kipling and Britta. When we aren’t serving in our communities you can find us at 4-H, wrestling, or gymnastics.

Favorite Scripture – Joshua 1:9   “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Fun Fact – I am a chicken enthusiast, some might say not. I raise and sell chickens and have anywhere from 20-60 throughout the year.
