Middle School Director
I was born and raised in the next door state of Missouri. I love the Midwest life and my heart is happy in Manhattan! My husband Brad and I have lived here since 2005 and raise four energetic boys in the country with cows, horses, chickens, dogs, and cats (oh my).
I have known God for as long as I can remember, but my relationship with Him truly began in young adulthood. Real life trials showed my desperate desire for Jesus, my deep need for his salvation, and a faith that was life changing.
Volunteering with kids at church and having kids of my own fueled my heart for ministry. What would my teenage years have looked like if someone (who wasn’t my parent) had walked with me and showed me who Jesus really is? Encouraged me, loved me, answered my questions, challenged me to pursue my faith? As Faith’s middle school director I get to put these kinds of people in the lives of our students. Leaders who will challenge them to develop and pursue an authentic faith.
I love a good book, good friends, and a great meal with my family. My heart skips a beat when I see babies and puppies. You can often find me cheering on my kids in whatever activities they are involved - I am their biggest fan!!
