Anna grew up with parents who are both Lutheran pastors—so she is a double PK. Because of this, serving in churches and at church camps has always been a part of who she is. She has a college and master’s degree in elementary education and also attended seminary part-time for children, youth, and family ministry. She has taught elementary education in four states in various grades. She also served as a youth worker for a ministry called TreeHouse in Minnesota. Anna married Jason in 2007 and they are blessed with a daughter, Grace, after many years of waiting. They also have a dog, Onyx. While their families both live in Minnesota still, they are grateful for their New Life family here in Gillette. Anna is thrilled to be serving at New Life as she knows the power of making people feel welcome so they can “Come as they are and become who they are meant to be.” She is grateful for the opportunity to serve the Lord and loves connecting with others.
