After having an amazing experience on a Des Moines plunge, I was inspired to inquire how my own city could get involved. Turns out I was the one God had in mind to get it in motion. Over the last year, I’ve spent a great deal of time seeking out, connecting, and plugging into our ministry partners to gain a better understanding of who they serve and how our teams can best suit them. My experience has been nothing short of amazing seeing how God connects all the pieces together. My mission for Chicago to bring awareness to our ministry partners and to help teams truly experience what it feels like to be the hands and feet of Jesus. I’ve been married for 18 years to my husband Mike. We have two children, Josh and Gracie, and two dogs. My work experience includes teaching at the middle school level, full time mom and sales position in a start-up company. I also hold a Masters degree in Education. As for free time, I am a huge people person so most of the time you will find me with family or friends. I also enjoy working out, reading, and spending time in the Word.
