The Holy Spirit led my family and me to Maranatha, and my time here has been a tremendous blessing. Before entering the Maranatha family, I grew up in Omaha, Nebraska and attended a Christian school where I walked with from a very young age. I received my BA in Secondary English Education from Wayne State College in 2014 and my MA in English from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2017. My husband, Luke, and daughter, Eva, and I moved to the Kansas City area in the summer of 2017, and we are enjoying our new home and the places and people of Kansas. When I’m not at school, I love spending time with my growing family; watching (and playing) volleyball, football, and baseball; reading good books; playing board games; and exploring new trails around town with my dog.

God continues to give me a full and beautiful life each day. I look forward to seeing all the ways God will bless Maranatha this year and in the years to come.

“…I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:10
