    Associate director of early childhood programs

    I went to school to become a Director of Christian Education. I received my undergrad at Concordia University in St. Paul, and graduated in 2015. My first Call was to Faith Lutheran Church in Lincoln, Nebraska to serve as a Director of Youth and Young Adult ministries. In 2016, I received the Call from Holy Emmanuel Lutheran in Bloomington, MN to serve as their Director of Children, Youth, and Family Ministries.

    I was born and raised in Alaska! I grew up spending a lot of time outdoors doing things like fishing, hiking, skiing, kayaking, and much more! My husband and I are making it a life goal to go back and fish up there once a year to stock our freezer. I always love to hear from people who have visited Alaska, so if you have any good stories about a vacation time spent up there- please come and share with me!

    In January of 2019 I met my husband Greg! We had a very lovely, COVID-style Wedding during the Spring of 2020. If we had a Family motto, it would probably be something like “Faith, Family, Fishing.”

    I am very excited to be here with you at Family of Christ! I have a love and joy for teaching children, working with families, and bringing joy into learning and growing in one’s faith. I am excited to put my God given gifts to work here serving in our Childcare Center! Thank you all so much for the wonderful welcome that I have received so far! Greg and I are looking forward to getting to know you and serve alongside you in God’s Kingdom!
