My Story

Having grown up in a Christian home, I have believed in God as Creator, Redeemer, and Friend for as long as I can remember. It was in 2015 when I began to more fully understand God as Sustainer and Father, a knowledge I am all the more grateful for with each coming day. The Lord taught me what it means to have His peace in all kinds of situations, and to prioritize a personal relationship with Him as the true source of life.
I attended Grace Church for the much of my childhood and all throughout Middle and High School, which laid the foundation for God’s use of my life as a vessel in His ministry. I went on the study at Moody Bible Institute in Spokane, WA, and have worked with children and youth for over twelve years in both work and volunteer settings. God has called me to love and serve His people from some of the earliest stages of life, and I am overwhelmed by this blessing. I can’t wait to serve and grow with your families and continue to worship our great God together!

If I need a pick-me-up, being outdoors, reading, and singing are what fill my cup. It is also my dream to hike the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine!

My Hope for Grace

My hope for Grace is that children and families can be united and become connected to a life filled with Christ’s love. I pray that we, as the family of God, can learn to imitate Jesus, and to give honor to the name of our Father.
