Hometown

This is a tricky question!  We have lived in Rochester and Long Lake, NY, Indiana, Washington, Germany, and the Czech Republic.  And now we are happily settled back in Houghton!

Educational background

BS in Therapeutic Recreation and Christian Education (Houghton, 1982) and Language Schools in Germany and Czech.

I have also homeschooled 5 of our children, which has given me a love of history and literature that being in public school never did!

Interesting fact about me

I rode an Indian elephant in Kathmandu, while visiting my son!

Why I chose Houghton

My two best friends and I decided in 4th grade that we would go to Houghton together, based on some amazing camp counselors that were Houghton students at the time!  I also knew Houghton would prepare me well for serving God in the US and overseas.

Favorite Houghton Memory

I met my future husband my second day on campus!

Along with Houghton, I love:

My Savior, my husband Kevin, our six kids plus the three daughters our sons chose for us, traveling, and keeping in touch with friends from all over the world on Facebook.
