My Motivation

I love the church and how Jesus designed community for us. Getting to connect people to each other and to God is the best!

My Background

Before working at the Bridge, I’ve been working at home as a mom and wife. My husband and I met at Moody Bible Institute in 1998 and I graduated with a degree in Bible Theology. Before I had kids, I was in the beauty and hospitality industry, working at a spa in downtown Chicago.

My Spiritual Journey

I grew up with parents who loved Jesus and I was saved at a young age. It was amazing to grow up observing such authentic followers of Jesus all around me. I had so many examples to look to, and I’m so thankful for this community that connected me to Jesus and showed me what it looked like to follow Him.

One More Thing

I was a missionary kid in middle school and my family lived in Irian Jaya.
