Church ministry has always been important to her.  Growing up in a Christian home, she started playing the piano in church as a teenager.  Giving her life to the Lord for full time service in high school, the Lord directed her studies toward church music ministries.  She has served as church accompanist to five churches as well as serving in other capacities such as Sunday School teacher, Awana worker, nursery work and other ministries of the church.  She ministers every Sunday at Hawthorn Inn , a partial care retirement center.  She is very grateful to God for the gifts and opportunities that He has given.
