Role in MAGL
I'm serve as the MAGL students' advocate, advisor, and guide through the MAGL program. I walk with students through all aspects of their program from the time they are admitted, through getting acclimated to online and adult learning, to degree completion. I also serve as a teaching assistant in the first two MAGL courses.
I joined the MAGL team in August 2012. Originally from West Michigan, I transplanted to Kentucky in 1998 to study at Asbury Theological Seminary where I earned MA's in Biblical Studies and World Missions and Evangelism, and a ThM in Intercultural Studies. My greatest accomplishments, however, are my two beautiful children, Abigail (Kentucky born) and Benjamin (Bosnian born), and my marriage to Frank, my husband of 13 years.
Prior to moving to Bosnia in 2005, Frank and I, both ordained ministers in the Wesleyan Church, worked with refugees both in KY and MI. I love cross-cultural living and am passionate about communicating truth in ways that are culturally relevant. In 2012 my family moved back to the Unites States.
Among my favorite things are a nice cup of dark coffee, collecting Starbucks City mugs, a good read, Indian food, learning something new, playing with our dog Mojo, and hiking in the beautiful Colorado mountains
