I’m a lifelong Presbyterian, having been baptized, confirmed, and ordained in the same church my parents were married in 65 years ago and still attend (Westminster Presbyterian, Akron, Ohio). Before coming to First Presbyterian Church in Fort Wayne I served as pastor of Faith Des Peres Presbyterian Church in St. Louis, Missouri, for 17 years. 

My husband Terry is also a Presbyterian minister and is currently serving at Trinity Presbyterian Church here in Fort Wayne. Together we have 4 children: Henry, a junior at the College of Wooster in Ohio; Tommy, a freshman at the University of Denver; Julia, a sophomore at Homestead High School, and Charlotte, who is in 5th grade. All of them have been involved in band or orchestra, two have run cross country and track, two are Eagle Scouts, two play piano, each of them are unique individuals in their own right, and together they add up to 4 great kids. Terry and I are truly blessed.
