I have been married to my husband Kyle since 2010. We have a daughter named Chloe and a high-energy dog named Finn. I love to spend time outside, bake, and play piano.
I grew up in a Christian family in western Michigan and was surrounded by Christ-like people who lovingly invested their time in me. As I got older, I started to understand the depths of my sin, and along with it, the overwhelming span of God’s grace and power to renew and redeem all of creation. On my own, I desire control over my life and I fear the unknown. However, the Holy Spirit is continually refining me, teaching me, and helping me to rely on Him.
I love helping to train and support Redemption Community leaders here at Gateway, as well as working with our team to connect new people into groups. I graduated with a B.A. in Elementary Education from Calvin College in Grand Rapids, MI. I also have an M.A. in Missional Theology from Covenant Theological Seminary, in partnership with the Missional Training Center in Tempe, AZ.
