Cheryl and I joined UNITY (COL) in 2003 during the period BC (before children). We were drawn by the
involvement of members, especially the youth. Then while visiting on Pentecost Sunday 2002 the
praise band played “Let It Rain” by Eric Clapton and I knew we were in the right place. We have two daughters,
Caitlin & Claire, who have enjoyed the youth opportunities from Sunday School and choirs to ECRT,
Senior High and youth trips. Outside of church (okay, sometimes inside as well) you’re likely
to find them in contact with a soccer ball.
I’m originally from Wauwatosa. Cheryl and I met at Marquette and after tours in Chicago and Indianapolis
we’ve called Brookfield home since 2001. At UNITY I’ve been a member of Adult Programs and then Comm & Tech since
its inception. My background is in engineering and business and I’ve worked in telecom for the last 25+ years.
I enjoy sports, music, and photography.
My two daughters, Kylie and Ellie, and I have been members of UNITY for almost 25 years.
I was immediately drawn to UNITY (COL Campus) when the girls were very young by Jo Ann Tomm’s amazing smile and welcoming hug. Both Kylie and Elle were
involved in a variety of youth offerings at UNITY including Sunday school, youth and high school trips like ECRT and the national youth
I was blessed to have the opportunity to share in some of these trips and experiences with them as well.
I have taught Sunday School, helped with confirmation classes and youth/high school events and trips throughout our years with UNITY.
Most recently, I have assisted with worship services at UNITY, participated in bible study opportunities and I just went on the
amazing El Salvador summer trip. This is my first time as a member of the church council.
Kylie graduated from Marquette University with her MBA and works here in Milwaukee. Ellie just started her senior year at Ball State
University in Interior Design. I am originally from Madison, but Menomonee Falls has been our home for the last 25 years. I am a physical
therapist by license, but I have been in healthcare management the last 17 years. I love sports (especially the Badgers), live music,
staying active, warm weather and every minute I get with my girls!
My husband, Jon, and our two children (Michael and Keira) joined UNITY in October, 2013.
We were looking for an ELCA church with a strong children's program and found our faith
family at UNITY. I am currently involved at UNITY as a Sunday School teacher, an
El Salvador scholarship team member, and I help mail the monthly newsletters.
I attended the University of Wisconsin at Oshkosh and am currently employed at
Mercer as the leader of the implementation & support team for pension administration.
