I was raised on a farm north of Jackson.  I then went on to work for 31 years at Southeast Missouri State University.  I retired in July 2010 after working in the Department of Computer Science and the Office of Institutional Research.  I then joined the staff of Good Shepherd in March 2011 as the part-time office secretary.  I am  married to Pat Wissman and I am the mother of Amanda and mom to Alexa, Lyulf and Trevor.
