Introducing our Staff!
This week we will learn a little more about Miss Caitlin!

I have been working in the office at Gethsemane for over three years and I love seeing the students and families every day. I graduated from Concordia University Nebraska in 2014 with a degree in Psychology and Christian Education. I married my husband Brandon in 2017 and we have two dogs Lexi and Kimbo. In my free time, I like to spend time outdoors, try new recipes, and work on projects to update our house and backyard.
