Rev. Carleen Burns

I spent 14 years in Corporate Trust and during that time would train new employees and ran training classes a few times. I also took a speech class during that time and found I really enjoyed public speaking. I felt several years ago that I was called to and interested in developing a wedding ministry. I was married myself by an officiant in my sister's backyard. Not everyone has a minister available to them or he/she may already be busy. That's where I come in. I am also on call at our elementary for special needs children. I have a grown daughter Jessica, son-in law Ben, son Travis and son Brandon. They range in age from 31 to 8. The younger two have many activities after school to occupy me, and I volunteer at both of their schools, too.
