I grew up in beautiful Southern California, where I studied Business at the University of Southern California. Following graduation, I worked as a real estate broker for a few years in Newport Beach, CA. In the fall of 2011, my life's adventure with Christ really kicked off when the Lord called me to follow him to the Northwoods of Wisconsin to serve in what is now called the Fellows program at HoneyRock. Since then, I have been based out of the “Southwoods” office on the Wheaton College campus in Wheaton, IL; first as the Advance Camp Coordinator while completing my Masters studies, and now as the Camp Programs Director.

For as far back as I can remember, God has been part of my life. While I have always had an awareness of His presence, it was not until after I reached the end of myself in college that I came to see my need for a Savior and surrender my life to Him. While I have not always been faithful, He has always pursued me and drew me into a deeper understanding of his love and grace. Having been radically transformed through the Gospel, I have a passion for supporting students as they come to more deeply know the joy of a relationship with our Father.

As the Camp Programs Director, I have the privilege of working with Graduate Students, Summer Staff, and campers. My favorite parts of my job are getting to work with our team to design programs that facilitate spaces for transformation in emerging adults and allow opportunities for campers eyes to be opened to the awesomeness of our God. Over the years, it has been a joy to watch students fall more deeply in love with our Savior as they discover more of who He has called them to be.
