I have been at Grace Church since October 2016 as Parish Nurse and also work as a hospice nurse for Amita, St.Thomas Hospice. As Parish Nurse, I assist with health education, promotion, resource information and advocacy. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in nursing from Texas Christian University. My nursing experience has been in home healthcare, hospice, hospital case management, and senior wellness and aging issues. My husband, Steve, and I met at TCU and have raised two daughters in the Chicago area. Our older daughter, Leslie, and her husband Jesse live in Littleton, Colorado, and Katie, our younger daughter, lives in Brimfield, Illinois, with her husband, Jake, and daughter, Molly. We are enjoying being grandparents. I work at Grace on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and the first and third Sunday of each month. When not at work I enjoy nature walks with my husband and dog, Max. Our favorite nature places to visit are Buena Vista, Colorado, and Door County, Wisconsin.
