Campus Ministry Staff
Hi there! I grew up in Ft. Wayne, IN and am a proud graduate of Ball State University. (chirp chirp!) After graduation I completed a year of volunteer service working on the south side of Chicago at an urban immersion retreat center, introducing teens and college students to issues of poverty and injustice through service in the city. Then I followed the Lord's call to serve in campus ministry all the way to Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, IL, where I was campus minister for several years. In 2014 I came home to the crossroads of America where I am now an honorary Bulldog. I am excited to be working with the BCC and happy to serve you in any way I can.
I don't believe in spare time, but I regularly make time for running, singing, watching Disney movies, quoting Elf, and eating chocolate.
Please feel free to drop by my office in the Blue House and say hello!
