FAMILY

I have 3 siblings, two parents, and a nephew I adore. I believe the family dynamic is one of the most precious gifts God has given us to enjoy and should be cherished and supported. I love getting to help cultivate sweeter relationships with the families I get to work with and live alongside.

EDUCATION

Bachelors of Arts in Human Services with emphasis in Communication Studies from Western Washington University. Go Vikings! And basic theology studies through the internship program at Hillcrest Chapel. 

ABOUT ME

I love kids, families, and all the craziness that comes with it both personally and professionally. When not at work there are few things that invigorate me more than learning a new bible fact, going for a long run in the forest, or simply laughing with close friends. Leisure time for me often includes reading a good book, doing a puzzle, building a new house project, or calling my mom or sisters. 

INTERESTS

How about a list: Outdoors, books, learning about just about anything, ice cream, pizza, coffee, dancing, making a fool of myself, cooking, being hospitable, carving, running, biking, traveling, meeting new people. 

FAVORITE MUSIC

I love most music that has instruments and voices. But I suppose more specifically I appreciate Nickel Creek, Josh Garrels, Josh Groban, The high Kings, Classical Music, Mumford and Sons, Movie Scores, Reliant K, Rend Collective, Passengers...... Oh there is too many.
