What do you love about Zeeland Christian?
I love the Christ-like community at Zeeland Christian among the staff, the students, and the families. ZCS is "home" for me and my family. I am privileged to be able to serve the kids and families at ZCS!
Why are you passionate about Christian Education?
At ZCS, we are able to live out our faith each day AND talk about it with everyone around us. We have the opportunity to build the foundation of kids' faith and to offer our community encouragement and support in the name of Jesus.
What do you want others to know about you?
My husband, Paul, and I have 5 kids: Emily, Andrew, Megan, Chelsea, and James. We live on the north side of Zeeland on my husband's family's 6 generation farm. Our kids have all attended ZCS, and we are transitioning into the high school years. I've never owned a pet, but the kids finally convinced me that they could take care of a dog on their own. Now we not only have 5 busy, active, and loud kids, we also have a Shiz tu named Prince who they adore. Between work and kids, our lives are full, but we are very blessed!
