Why I work in Youth Ministry
To put it simply, because this is where God led me. I was looking for a position that would combine my faith and talents/training in office procedures and God led me here after a lot of prayer and searching. I love to be a part of the behind the scenes aspects of the many events that the office organizes to bring Christ to the youth.

About Me
I was born in a tiny town in Nevada about 100 miles from Las Vegas but grew up in Grand Junction, Colorado. I am the youngest of 7 children and an aunt to 11 amazing nieces and nephews. I love a good adventure including skydiving, roller coasters, or exploring new places, so far I have traveled to Italy, Germany, and Ireland but I have many more places on my wish list. If you want to know anything else about me just ask.
