Originally from Peoria, Illinois, I graduated from Carthage College in Wisconsin and the Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago. I served congregations in Ohio and Elgin, Illinois, before coming to St. Mark’s in 1996. My long-term pastorate has been deeply meaningful and life-giving for me. I enjoy relationships built over many years, as well as meeting new people. For me, life in the church is about working together for the well-being of all people and creation. I prioritize helping people match their gifts to the world’s deepest need. I am married to Edward Hunter; we have two sons, a chocolate Lab, and an old turtle. Working out, gardening, cooking, reading, and listening to NPR help me to pay attention to the Abundance we have been given and the work there is to do.
