In addition, she has represented BBT at district conferences and many Annual Conferences. She has served on the communications team of the Church Benefits Association since 2010.

BBT held a celebration of her nearly 10 years of employment on Thursday, Dec. 7, at the Church of the Brethren General Offices in Elgin.
