I’m originally from the west coast (all the states, California, Washington, Hawaii) and have made my home in Kansas City since 2003. For most of my adult life, I have earned a living M-F while leading a congregation on nights and weekends. I managed subcontractors and church volunteers, facilitated Bible studies and business meetings. I play guitar and piano and sing with a big passionate voice.
In 2017, I married a guy named, Adam, who had been unhappily stuck in the friend zone since 2005. I like to hike with our two dogs, Jack and Charlie, kayak, and my new thing, play pickleball.
My last pastoral assignment ended in 2018. Since then, I have discovered I love to write, create and think deep thoughts. My emerging theme is encouragement. How can I empower others to be the best version of themselves? This question pushes me to rethink, relearn and continue to grow.
I enjoy great conversation. If you have thoughts you’d like to share, send me a note. I look forward to hearing from you.
