Executive Assistant

My Motivation

It's awesome to see people find their worth in Christ. Jesus has completely transformed my heart and the way I view myself and others. People need to hear about a God who loves them. As Christians, we have that message of hope and it is our job to share it.

My Background

Before moving to the Chicago area, I worked as the Worship and Production Coordinator at a church in North Carolina. I moved from my hometown in North Carolina to Des Plaines, Illinois in October 2019 to serve as a worship leader here at The Bridge. I came on staff full-time in July 2020.

My Spiritual Journey

I grew up in a Christian home and was saved at a young age. It wasn't until I moved away for college that my faith and relationship with Jesus became real. I had to figure out who Jesus was to me. Was he personal or just someone I grew up learning about? During this time of living on my own, my parents were very influential in my walk with Christ. Their leadership in my life propelled my heart forward for ministry.

One More Thing

I have a very cute dog. She is a mini poodle and her name is Paisley.
