I was born in Elyria, Ohio in 1971 and received Jesus Christ into my life when I was six years old.

I graduated from The Ohio State University in 1994 with a BS in Occupational Therapy. I worked as an Occupational Therapist at Baylor Institute for Rehabilitation in Dallas, Texas while Nate worked on his seminary degree.

Nate and I joined the staff of Cru in the summer of 1998 and we reported to our first assignment at the University of Michigan in the fall of 1999. We joined the Mid-Atlantic Region in the fall of 2016.

Being a mom and homeschooling our kids take most of my time, and I am really enjoying it. What did I ever do before Andrew, Lauren, Lindsey, and Caleb? Read more about my interests on my Facebook page.
