I’m a Midwest girl at heart: Born in Detroit, Michigan and grew up in southeastern Ohio. I surrendered my life to Jesus the summer after 5th grade and thought following Jesus looked like being “good.” I come from a family of distance runners including my parents and three sisters, and running quickly became my identity and idol. It wasn’t until I went through a devastating fracture at 16 that I truly began to walk with Jesus. He lead me to start a Fellowship of Christian Athletes at my high school which was a catalyst of the Lord moving me toward a calling into full time ministry. I attended Liberty University to run track & cross country and pursue a Bachelor’s in Business Marketing and Master’s in Student Ministry. Since, the Lord has been so faithful to allow me to have a front row seat to Him changing the hearts and lives of high schoolers, college students, and young adult women! God has given me a deep desire to disciple the future of the church. I love my family, my two sweet nieces, coffee, baking the best chocolate chip cookies, Trader Joe’s, running, Michigan State Basketball (GO GREEN!!), paddle boarding and people!! I’m excited to be a part of all God is doing here!
