My last name rhymes with “valley.” My husband Bill and I have been married for almost forty years, and we have lived in the western suburbs of Chicago all throughout that time. We presently live in North Aurora. We are very proud of our four grown sons and three wonderful daughters-in-law. They have given us two precious grandsons, and one more new grandbaby is on the way!
Prior to coming to TEAM, I was a stay-at-home mom and very active in church activities. A few years ago, I started teaching school, and enjoyed my first-grade students very much, but as the time-demands of teaching infringed more and more on my home life and church commitments, I decided to make a change and find work that would allow me to have more balance and the ability to focus more directly on working for the good of the Kingdom. I am thrilled that God directed and allowed me to make a job change, so I could begin to serve here at TEAM!
Administrative Assistant for Global Ministry
As an Administrative Assistant for Global Ministry at the Carol Stream office, I am very pleased that I work with missionaries and can get to know them! I read prayer letters, keep track of their comings and goings, update changes of address, arrange debriefing schedules, help with orientation meetings, and keep the connections open between them and the offices at TEAM. I work with missionaries in Japan, Latin America, Europe, and parts of Asia.
