Manager of UA Planned Giving and Scholarship Operations



About MaryKay:

I have worked in three offices since starting my career at Bethel in 2008: Church Relations, Academic Affairs, and now Advancement. I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to experience three very different areas of Bethel’s mission.

My husband, Mark, and I have three grown children, all of whom have attended Bethel. It's been a joy for me to be on campus while our kids attended, occasionally hearing "Mom!" across Kresge Courtyard. We have been incredibly blessed by being part of the Bethel community.

What I enjoy about my job:

I love knowing that the work we do is making a difference in students’ lives. They then go out and make an impact for Christ in the world. I also greatly appreciate the wonderful friendships I have made while working at Bethel—friendships I know will last a lifetime.

In my free time:

I love to read, spend time with family (Great Pyrenees pups included!), and travel. Having a son who is pilot is a great advantage!. My main goal in life is to help people thrive in life, health, and faith.

Guiding Scripture:

Ephesians 3:20-21 and Philippians 4:13
