I feel as though I'm fulfilling God's purpose through working with children and families, and serving as the Simon Cottage Manager. I'm passionate about making a difference in the young lives of those we serve. In my spare time, I love spending time with family and close friends, and enjoy baking cakes and cupcakes as a hobby.

I've loved helping the children I work with build trust and feel safety in their relationships with adults. I have a Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Valpraraiso University and a Bachelor's in Psychology from Indiana University. When I'm not working with our kids and families, I enjoy running, learning new recipes for mac & cheese, and playing with my cat.
I have a bachelors degree in Psychology and Neuroscience. I love the human brain and how the the brain reacts to others based on the relationship. I love helping children and families better accept each other through understanding and love. In my spare time, I love to sing. I've been singing for as long as I can remember.
I earned my bachelors degree from Quincy University, and went on to get my Masters of Social Work from Illinois State University in 2009. I'm currently working on my professional educator's license from Aurora University. I enjoy volunteering at my church's children's program, spending time with my family, and traveling when I can.
