I am so excited to be a part of the Reformed Church of Dell Rapids.

I grew up in Dell Rapids and graduated from the Dell Rapids Public High School in 1997. I married my high school sweetheart, Jesse, in 2000. We have 2 beautiful daughters, Ashlee and Amber. As well as 3 dogs, Haas, Hershey, and Henry!

I work full time as a patient advocate for the Gynecologic Oncology and Precision Oncology teams at Avera Cancer Institute.  I love working at the cancer institute and being able to be a part of a care team for cancer patients. 

I am in the office Monday and Thursday evenings and Saturdays. Stop on by sometime and say hi!

Thanks!
Jenni
