Kim Bohley

Kim Bohley

Administrative Assistant/Bookkeeper
I have been blessed by the way the Lord has opened doors–Lutheran doors–as I began my church career over two decades ago at Bethany Lutheran (Palmyra), St. Paul’s (Hainesport) and now at St. Matthew, as the Administrative Assistant/Bookkeeper. Since raising a daughter with special needs can be challenging, the Lord made sure he provided me with a loving church family to support me on this journey. Coming from a banking family, I was an Executive Secretary at PSFS, where I met my husband, Martin. My passion is listening to Elvis on the way to Cape May.
