Some background information on Pastor Traci: She was born and raised in Altoona, a lifelong Lutheran, baptized at St. Paul’s and confirmed at Trinity Lutheran Church. She graduated from Altoona Area High School and Thiel College, where she majored in English. In Rocky River, OH then Williamsport, PA, she was both a private and public school teacher in grades 7 through 12.
In the parish she has a passion for preaching, teaching, youth ministry, and projects that bring the church together in service to the community. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, knitting, quilting, hiking, biking, skiing, and travel. This June, her husband, Pastor David and she celebrated 10 years of marriage. Our house resounds with the pitter-patter of furry feet: our Labrador retriever, Otto, and cats, Osgar and Odin. She is the proud godmother of Alexander and Scarlett, my best friend Lisa’s two-year-old twins.
