Communications Director

My Motivation

I've experienced firsthand the impact getting personally connected with The Bridge can have on your life, and I want to help others experience the abundance of support and encouragement that can come when these connections are made.

 

My Background

I was born and raised on the southside of Chicago. I went to college in Peoria and spent time working in Kansas before returning back to the Chicago area. Before working for the Bridge, I worked in communications for a construction company and coupon settlement company. I was also an editor for an accounting magazine. My husband Todd and I have two daughters, and a third child on the way.

 

My Spiritual Journey

While I grew up in the church, I haven't always lived intentionally for God. Thankfully, God has placed people in my life that have held me accountable and challenged me to rise to the occasion. Being at The Bridge has really helped me to grow in my spiritual journey in new and exciting ways.

 

One More Thing

I want to visit every country in Africa.
