My Story

I serve as CHN's Director of Children, Youth & Family Formation. I studied Bible and theology at Wheaton College and received a graduate degree in social work from the Jane Addams School of Social Work at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I have previously worked in publishing, student development/higher education, public K-12 education, and social work, and I love bringing all of that experience together to create a culture of belonging, growth, and connection for our children and youth here at CHN. 

I enjoy reading, collecting creative hobbies, traveling with my husband, and spending time with our friends and family, including many nieces and nephews. My husband, Nick, is a firefighter with a wacky schedule, but you'll see him around the church as often as he can make it! At some point you may also meet our ferocious 13-pound pup, Maddie. We're Ohio State fans, but we promise to be civil to fans of the team up north within the walls of CHN. 


We want all of our children and youth to experience belonging, connection, and growth here at CHN, and we are always ready to hear your input. If you have any questions, concerns, ideas, dreams, etc., please don’t hesitate to contact me.
