Tabetha joined the synod staff team as the Synod Administrator on January 17, 2023. In this role she provides support for many aspects of work of the synod office: finance, candididacy, roster management, office management, and other duties as assigned. Tabetha loves data entry and organizing. Tabetha even makes Excel sheets in her spare time!
She is a lover of all animals, especially cats and if you get her talking about rocks and crystals she might not stop. Tabetha worked for Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, IA as their librarian but moved back to the Pacific Northwest to be closer to family. While a recent transplant to Seattle, she has lived in the Pacific Northwest most of her life. Tabetha spent her teenage years in Richland WA, graduated from the University of Idaho with a psychology degree, and most recently comes from Corvallis, OR. GO Beavers! She spent some time in Coos Bay, OR working for their historical society so she understands how to preserve the knowledge of the past while working toward the future.
If you are in our synod office, don't forget to say hi. Tabetha loves meeting new people and catching up with acquaintances and friends.
