She then served at CFC Lutheran in Houston, TX, from 2004-2012 as a church planter deaconess intern. Her calling then led her to serve as a church planter deaconess at Shepherd of the Valley ins West Des Moines, IA, from 2013-2021, where she worked to establish a vibrant ministry in a growing community.
