I am a mother of two sons, two daughters-in-law, and nine grandchildren.
I retired in 2007 from a company located in Santa Monica where I had worked for 15 years as the Assistant to the President. I began attending New Hope (Westlake Lutheran Church) in 2004. I became a member when I moved to Thousand Oaks in 2012.
I like it here at New Hope very much, especially being with my sister, Sue and my church family. I particularly love Pastor Craig: his sermons and his warm and welcoming personality are the main reasons. But the whole congregation has made me feel a part of the community.
Serving on the Church Council has been rewarding and has given me insight into how New Hope Lutheran Church operates.
