Director of Resident Services

I grew up in a small rural community in Illinois. I married my husband in September of 1982, and we raised two beautiful daughters who are both married and living their lives happily. We've been blessed with a perfect little grandson too. God has been so good to my family and to me.

I've been with ICM since 2001. I’ve worked in several different capacities and have loved every new challenge presented. We truly are a family at Inner City Mission, residents included. I love it that God sends us these special people and gives us the opportunity to help each one of them.

Just to be able to freely talk about Jesus at work and to pray with residents and co-workers is a blessing! We at ICM are not only allowed to do so, but are encouraged to on a daily basis. It's part of the job description. What a Blessing!
