I’m a storyteller redeemed, undeservedly, by Grace. I believe everyone’s story has worth and even the mundane contains beauty.

My writing has been featured in publications including The Times of Northwest Indiana, HERE Magazine, Valparaiso Magazine, and Get Healthy. I’m a graduate of Indiana State University, though I believe that learning is an ongoing opportunity available to the curious.

I also work behind-the-scenes on the worship staff at Bethel Church in Northwest Indiana.

I’m an introverted, married, mini-van driving mom of three. I do my best to covertly defy the tired cliche by letting the kids eat pizza in front of the TV on Friday nights, riding first car in roller coasters, and enjoying epic imagications.
