Director of Youth Ministries
I joined the Pine Ridge family as Youth Director in June of 2018. I’m originally from Indianapolis, IN but moved to Missouri for college at Mizzou, where I graduated in 2017. I’m currently attending the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary to obtain my Masters of Mission and Discipleship. I was married in November 2019 to my husband Zach, we live in Independence with our 3 fur-babies. In my free time I’m often on the softball field coaching!
Working in ministry and for the church was something I’ve been preparing for over the years completion of two youth ministry internships and working as an Interim Youth Director in Columbia, MO. My goal within the church is to work with youth and young adults around the country to bridge the gap many churches face between childhood and adulthood. I hope to encourage and support the youth at Pine Ridge to actively seek God in their everyday life, in whatever way suits their faith. In doing so, I believe youth are more likely to continue on their journey with God as they move beyond high school. I’m an open book, so please, let me know if you have any questions and hope to see you around the Pine Ridge community.
