Angie and her husband, Chris, live in rural northern Indiana. They have two adult children who now have families of their own. Angie is a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant and is active at the state and national levels in her profession. She holds Certificates in Accounting, Accessibility Consultation and Spiritual Formation, a Bachelor’s Degree in Organizational Leadership and is currently pursuing her Master’s Degree in Spiritual Formation and Evangelism to complete Ordination as a Deacon. She enjoys serving in disability and health ministry and mission and is the coordinator of The Health Ministry Network serving her community. She began working in health missions in 2007 with Wheels for the World in Arequipa, Peru.
During her first trip to Peru she first encountered Quechua Benefit at the International Alpaca Fiesta. When news of the Snowmass Health Clinic was released, Angie became involved in the effort to secure the medical supplies and equipment for the clinic. In November 2011, Angie made her fourth trip to Peru, this time joining the Quechua Benefit Medical Mission with Wheels for the World in a mobility outreach in the Colca Canyon.
Angie has four alpacas and is the handler for her brother’s alpaca farm. Angie firmly believes that God has joined her love of alpacas, her career in occupational therapy and her background in spiritual formation and medical mission to prepare her for her call to the Order of Deacon.
