I was born and raised in Fort Wayne. I have always had a passion for children's ministry. Growing up in the church I could always be found watching over kids in the nursey, volunteering for VBS, or helping teach the children’s lessons. My senior year of high school I had an internship in the children’s ministry program at the church I was raised in. Four years ago, I felt led to join Trinity UMC as their children's director. Working here has helped me grow in so many ways and seeing God at work as our ministry expands has led me to start working on my early childhood education degree with Indiana Wesleyan. I am using everything I am learning there as we open our daycare, Trinity's Treasured Tykes, where I am excited to be teaching the 1-2 yr old class. Working with the kids at Trinity is one of the best blessings of being in this Christ centered community, but music has also always been a huge part of my family and my interactions with God. I love worshiping with my voice and I enjoy singing in both the choir and praise band and when the need arises, I also help with tech and our live stream on Sunday mornings.
