Summary: Mrs. Koob accepted the role of Receptionist for Good Shepherd Church & School in August 2023.
Staff Role at Good Shepherd: Receptionist
Volunteer Roles: I was a volunteer in the Kid’s Ministry at our previous church. I presently volunteer at Good Shepherd Church, helping with Faith Night planning and execution. In past school years I have served lunch and volunteered in the library.
Favorite Bible Passage: Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Why Mrs. Koob wanted to work at Good Shepherd: As our boys have grown and our lives have become busier, I wanted to find something that would allow me to have more time with my family and perhaps ease some of the go, go, go that comes with parenting. I am looking forward to having my work schedule align with their school schedule and being in the same place they are all day. Being able to spend the summer at home with them (while they still want to hang out with me) is an added bonus! I am excited to explore this new path and look forward to getting to know more Good Shepherd students and their families.
Mrs. Koob’s philosophy: Live life with grace for yourself and others. This has proved a challenging philosophy with three young boys, but we are working on it.
Education: Paralegal A.S. Degree and a class or two shy of a B.A. in Criminal Justice.
Experience: I worked in the legal field as a legal assistant and paralegal for the last 22+ years.
Home Life: My husband and I met while working at the Juvenile Court in Minneapolis. We were married in Riviera Maya, Mexico 12 years ago. Once we started our family, we moved from Bloomington to Apple Valley (where I grew up) to be closer to grandma (my mom). Our family enjoys movie nights, game nights, pools/waterparks, the outdoors, exploring, sports, and always keeping hope alive that the Vikings will win a Superbowl.
