Children's Ministry Director
I grew up in Medina, MN, and graduated from Orono High School in 1998. I studied Elementary Education and graduated from The College of Saint Benedict/St John’s University in 2002. I taught in public schools and worked in the private sector before moving my career into children’s ministry. I have spent the past eight years working as a Faith Formation Specialist with children and families. I currently live in Plymouth with my husband, Ryan; daughters, Ava and Cora; and our French bulldogs, Bella & Blue. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, hosting game nights and holidays, and spending time outdoors. My hobbies include photography, baking, event/party planning, and travel. I began working at SOC in September of 2021 as the Director of Children’s Ministry. I’m passionate about sharing the hope and love of Jesus with children, building relationships and connections, and supporting young families along their faith journey.
