I was blessed by being hired as First Christian Church’s Administrative Assistant in October 2012. I create our weekly newsletter (The Spirit), do the weekly worship bulletins, assist people in need, maintain office supplies, and serve as the communication hub for the church. Most of all, with God’s help, I try to keep our church office running smoothly!
I was previously employed by KSB Bank for 13 years as a Senior Teller. During this time I learned to open savings/checking/certificate of deposit accounts; maintain my teller drawer balance and earned a level of a trust with my employer and customers that prepared me for my job at FCC. Prior to KSB Bank, I had 13 years of experience in retail between Osco Drug Store and Kirlin’s Hallmark. I originally came to Keokuk when I served in the United States Coast Guard from 1982-1986. I married my husband Doug (of 31 years) and together we raised our daughter, Courtney. We gained a son in October 2013 when Courtney married Robert G. Treadwell.
We have two pets, a cocker spaniel, Baylee and our rescue miniature pincher, Sugar. Together, they fill our time with their needs and play time. We enjoy music, being outdoors, traveling to visit family and spending time laughing with friends.
What do I love about FCC?
First Christian Church is a church that has faith, compassion, hope, vision, and is community oriented. Plus, I get to work in God’s house every day! That is what I love about First Christian Church!
