I am a mainline Christian with a bit of a progressive lean. I’ve been married to my favorite person for over 20 years and have two amazing adult daughters. I love to travel, experience different cultures, learn, and try new things. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Azusa Pacific University and worked as a hospice nurse for over 15 years. I served for many years as a lay staff member in a local church, leading our community in missions and outreach.
I am a trained NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) Family to Family teacher and partner with counselors in caring for my directees who live with a mental illness. I bring my years of caring for those in life transitions, suffering, and grief, along with my love for those struggling to remain in the Christian community during these difficult times to each Spiritual Direction session.
I have a passion for seeing lives transformed through the healing of relationships with God, others, self, and creation.
