I grew up in Buena Vista, Colorado, where I heard the Gospel for the first time as a 5-year-old in my Kindergarten classroom. That school year my journey with the Lord began and so did my desire to become a Kindergarten teacher. I went to college at Cedarville University in Ohio and spent one year doing ministry in Eastern Europe after graduation. The following year, I moved back to the States to a small town in Indiana and taught Kindergarten, my lifelong dream, for only two years. It turns out God had different plans for me! That first year of teaching I met my future husband, Josh, who was on staff with Cru, a college campus ministry. A year and a half later I found myself also joining staff with Cru and getting married. Through Cru we had many amazing opportunities to do ministry around the world and most recently here in Fort Collins at CSU. I recently left staff with Cru and joined the staff of The Town Church. Josh and I have been deeply grateful to call this church our home!
