It was pure chance that brought me to First Presbyterian. After my husband, Rick, and I moved to Bend from Whidbey Island, WA, we took a brief but enjoyable break to acquaint ourselves with this beautiful area. Missing interaction with people, I began my search to join the working folk again and was fortunate enough to stumble across this position – and even more fortunate to be offered the role. I am thrilled to be meeting so many of the wonderful people involved with First Presbyterian. Everyone has been kind and welcoming, and I feel extremely blessed to be here.
Rick and I enjoy hiking the many amazing trails in this area, spending as much time as possible with our five beautiful grandchildren, visits to the gym (which Rick enjoys more than I do except for the swimming), and playing with our golden retriever, Josie. We’re hoping to take up fly fishing in the near future. Life in Bend is extraordinary, and we look forward to many more adventures!
