I became a part of the Lauber Group team in November of 2017. I assist with the commercial accounts & provide extra hands to handle overflow projects. My husband Brian & I love to travel & to visit our grown children, but Archbold is home. One of my main joys in life is actively serving & visiting The Grace Center in Malawi, Africa.
