I was born and raised in the Valley, and graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Communication. After a brief time living near the beach in San Diego after graduating, I returned to Phoenix and got a degree in secondary education. I was an English teacher for a number of years, and then adventure called again, and I moved to Chicago, where I met my husband, Jeremiah. The mountains beckoned us next, and we enjoyed a yearlong “extended honeymoon” in Aspen before we returned once again to settle in Tempe in 2009. Jeremiah and I have two boys, Royal and Archer, who keep us busy with sports, gaming, and a lot of outdoor fun.
New Valley has been our church home since 2013, and I joined the staff as the Children’s Assistant Director in 2018. I moved into the role of Administrator in the summer of 2022, and I’m thrilled to be serving the church in this capacity.
