Versluis is a Cedar Rapids native, but grew up in Jesup. She spent most of her adult life there, as well, but is looking forward to living in Charles City. She has one child, Trey, who is a US Army Veteran, Specialist in the US Army Reserve, and Biomedical Equipment Technician for Unity Point/Allen Hospital.
Outside of work, Versluis is a member of the First Presbyterian Church in Jesup, where she is an Elder. She serves on the Committee on Ministry for the North Central Iowa Presbytery as well as the Hometown Heroes Military Box Project committee in Jesup. The latter organization sends care packages to deployed soldiers during Christmas and also supports various Hometown Hero initiatives as needed for soldiers returning from overseas. Each July, Versluis devotes vacation time to managing the donut and funnel cake booth at the annual Jesup Farmers Day celebration. She looks forward to getting more involved in the Charles City Community.
