I am from Oregon, born and raised. I grew up in the small town of Rainier, Oregon where I graduated from high school. I have two older sisters, a little brother and two amazing parents who love and serve the Lord. When I was 5 years old I recognized God as my savior, but it wasn’t until my senior year of high school that I truly surrendered my life to Christ.  During my senior year of high school, I felt a tug from God to become a minister and love young people by giving my life to the ministry. Out of obedience I surrendered my wants for college and let God direct my future steps. After graduating I joined a two-year discipleship program for students called to vocational ministry called Oregon Youth Alive Ministry Academy (OYAMA for short). Within the program I was encouraged, empowered and equipped for the ministry through life coaching, hands on ministry experience and an education through Northwest University. I recently graduated from OYAMA and I am excited about where God is leading me. I am passionate about middle school students and believe that middle school students who are on fire for Christ will impact their schools, cities, and states. I enjoy spending time with my family as well as being outside in nature. I am no happier then when I am standing next to a waterfall or on a hike in the middle of the forest. I am excited about joining the team at Parkway and can’t wait to meet everyone!
