Camper Registration Assistant
On Staff since 2020
I was born and raised in southern California, however, my family moved to the Midwest while I was in junior high. I graduated High School in a small town in central Wisconsin. After HS, I attended Wheaton College for two years, got married, and have been raising my 5 children ever since. I currently live in the Wheaton area, and I enjoy working out, cooking, photography, hiking, biking, traveling, and enjoying anything related to being outdoors. My family attends Christ Presbyterian Church (PCA) and we really love connecting with our church body through bible studies, community groups, and serving opportunities.
I asked Jesus into my heart when I was 6 years old, but my faith became real and personal in my 20’s while going through a season of trial. The Lord drew my heart closer to Himself as I learned to trust Him and walk with Him throughout this challenging season. Out of this difficult period, God gave me a passion for His Word, a love for others going through similar trials, and a desire to serve women through bible studies and discipleship. I’m so thankful for His faithfulness to me in the midst of trials and in all the ups and downs of life. Even in moments when I choose my own selfish way, He faithfully pursues me and reminds me of who I am and how much He loves me.
I was first introduced to HoneyRock through Freshman High Road, which is now called Passage. I was the college freshman girl who showed up with a hairdryer packed in my suitcase and dreams of endless days of rock climbing. I had no idea what I was in for. God used the next 21 days in the wilderness to begin breaking down my self-reliance, independence, and pride. High Road taught me to dig deep into Christ and into Scripture. It taught me the necessity of relying on and trusting others, and it built in me a strength and resolve to persevere through challenges and hardships. I returned to Honeyrock over spring break for a college Horsemanship Camp, and then returned to work all summer on the waterfront staff, lifeguarding and teaching boating skills to campers. Years later, I began sending my kids to HoneyRock as campers, and HoneyRock has been a place where each of them has grown in character, faith, and a love of the outdoors. When a position opened up at HoneyRock’s Wheaton office, it was an easy decision for me to apply and join the staff at the “southwoods campus” because of how God has used this place in my life and in life of my family over the last 25+ years. I love the heart and mission of Honeyrock, and it is my prayer that the Lord will continue to use HoneyRock to shape and build His purpose into the lives of all who come to this beautiful “place apart.”
