Started working at Zion in… 2016

Favorite thing about working at Zion… Getting to live out my call to serve the people of God in a setting here all are welcome, and passions are lived out

Committees and ministries I’m involved with… Children & Family Ministry, Youth & Family Ministry, Global Missions

Favorite worship song …  Come to the Table, this song shows me the invite of God to the life of grace

My family … I live in Buffalo with my furry friend Louie

When I’m not at Zion, you can find me… at Disney World…and when not there exploring small towns and big cities, enjoying the outdoors, or working on a project at home

Something you might not know about me is… I grew up in Wisconsin so I am known from time to time to call a drinking fountain a bubbler
