A little background on me. I graduated from Northwest University in 2005 with a Bachelors in Children’s Ministry. I was a children’s pastor in Snoqualmie before I met my amazing husband Ryan. We have been married almost 14 years and have 3 amazing kids. I have a daughter who is 10, and my boys  who are 8 and 5.  I enjoy playing games and hanging out with my family. We love to go camping and fishing. I  also branched out into homeschooling this year and it has been both difficult and so rewarding.  My kids have loved having more time together. I have been at the Grove for 7 years and on staff 2 and 1/2 where I started as the Nursery Coordinator, and then moved into my current role as the Preschool Coordinator. I love kids and love seeing them explore and learn about the Bible and Jesus’s love.



I love thrifting kid clothes.  I also love to crochet in my very hard to find, free time.  I love reading and have recently found audiobooks as a way to get my reading in while driving kids everywhere and running errands.

Favorite Books:
My Favorite books are the Hunger Games series, Harlan Coben novels, and the Divergent series.
