Daughter of Warren and Linda Tyson of Brownstown PA, I shared an enriching childhood with three younger siblings. After graduation from Eastern Mennonite High School, a touring choir trip to Germany gave me a yearning to return to Europe. Before starting college, I experienced a life changing experience while serving one year as a member of the Germany YES team with Eastern Mennonite Missions. During my young adult years, I earned a BA in Sociology with a Business Management minor from Millersville University part-time while working full-time for Staples. In my final year of college, I accepted a position at York Rescue Mission as the director of Women’s Ministry during which time I met my husband. Currently I make my home in Berryville VA with my husband, Eugene and our cat, Kitty. We relocated from Pennsylvania in 2008 in order to be closer to the Washington Dulles airport where Eugene works as an airline pilot. Besides operating this business, I volunteer as an assistant airport chaplain at Washington Dulles Airport ( Metropolitan Washington Airports Interfaith Chapels ). My husband and I are active members of the Mennonite church. I really enjoy vegetable gardening, reading, exploring with Eugene, baking bread, watching birds, and visiting our family.
