About Audra M. Koontz

A full-time paralegal by day for a small law firm in Muncie, I wear many hats after 5pm. Wife, mother, homeschool educator, bible study facilitator, dance fitness instructor, volunteer, board member with MACC, disciple of Jesus Christ (all in no particular order), are a few of my rolls to play. I graduated from Wes-Del High School in 1997. During high school I also earned my vocational decree in Law Enforcement from the Muncie Area Career Center. After high school, I attended Ball State University and graduated in July, 1999, with my Associates Degree in Criminal Justice and Criminology. My husband is water treatment specialist by day and also wears many hats at night (actor, child taxi driver, volunteer). Our entire family has volunteered for many organizations over the past several years including, but not limited to: Muncie Civic Theatre, Anderson Young Ballet Theatre, YWCA, Secret Families of Delaware County, Girl Scouts of America, and commUNITY church. My husband began acting shortly after we married in 2000. Our daughter began dancing at the age of 2, in 2007. In 2010, my husband began a charitable cause entitled The Berry Long Run. I have worked alongside him organizing each event since it's commencement. I am proud to announce that 2019 will be our 10th annual event. From organizing free community carnivals, t-shirt sales, painting the streets in town, and booking summer concerts, Another Berry Long Run is always a great challenge. In 2011, as Gaston Town Council President, I entered Gaston in the "Back Home Again in Indiana" contest with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway who was celebrating 100 years. As a town with less than 300 households, we made it into the top 10 in the State by organizing a local racing museum, a community block party, and painting the IMS logo on the street in the main intersection of town. I take pride in my community and always strive to serve in any capacity the Lord directs to me.
