Growing up in central Phoenix was never an issue when it came to church. My family attended Redemption Gilbert (formally East Valley Bible Church) for the past 15 plus years. I have always loved the Redemption family and it’s strong Biblical teachings. Since I was a little girl, I’ve always LOVED dresses; I have sweet memories of our family going up to say hi to Tom Shrader after church and he would ALWAYS tell me how much he loved my dress. I feel blessed and thankful to have grown up under his leadership, training, and teaching.
I am the oldest of three, and have two multi-talented brothers and an amazing, Godly mom and dad. I love to travel, discover new places, read, drink copious amounts of coffee, do makeup + lashes, spend time with family + friends, and learn more about our Divine Creator and His beautiful creation. After studying at Biola for undergrad, I took a job at a one-room, private school called Acton Academy Phoenix. While running and guiding the blended-learning, multi-aged, start up school, I began a Masters program through Wheaton College.
I am in awe and excited for the journey He is leading me on; I am thankful and honored to be apart of the Redemption Gateway team!
