I was born and raised in Southern California. I attended Messiah College in Pennsylvania before moving to Southern Ontario. I found my way to Bethany through my involvement in the Divorce Care and Celebrate Recovery ministries.
I have been a secondary school educator for 20 years in private Christian schools. I received my BA in Education with specialties Spanish and English as a Second Language. I have been teaching Bible, Christian Lifestyle, and Theology courses throughout my career. I have become passionate about the compassionate care of those struggling through difficult life issues due to my own journey.
I have three beautiful children who keep me busy and humble. I thank God every day for who He has created them to be. We spend most of our free time and family time around animals. We have several pets at home and we are active in the hunter/ jumper horse community in Niagara. Additionally, I enjoy a good London Fog tea and a good book.
