I am originally from Corvallis, Oregon. As a child, I wanted to be a missionary. After high school, I pursued my love for children and worked in a daycare, as a nanny and a preschool teacher. God opened the opportunity for me to serve as a missionary with G.O. Ministries in the Dominican Republic in 2004 through and internship. I felt God leading me to work full time in the ministry and found myself moving to the Dominican Republic March 1 2005. Today, I facilitate nearly 35 teams from the U.S. helping build churches, nutrition centers, lead medical clinics, sports outreach and children’s ministry. In addition, I am the director of the growing hub in Hato del Yaque and have great hopes to see God’s impact in that community.
