I accepted Christ at the young age of 3 and recommitted my life to Christ when I was older and better understood what it really meant to be a follower of Christ. I grew up as a missionary kid in Quito, Ecuador and Vienna, Austria where I deepened my passion for Christ and compassion for His people. God continues to work in me daily as I pursue Him and seek His will for my life.
Favorite Bible Verse:
Romans 8:28, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to His purpose.” I love this verse because it reminds me that I am called by God and he will use me for His glory if I put Him first in my life and follow after Him.
I taught Middle School Social Studies at Central Middle School in Norwood Young America from 2013-2018. I taught Middle School Social Studies in the Spanish Immersion program at Chaska Middle School West from 2018-2019.
