Where did you work before Christ Church?
Project HOPE Foundation, a local organization that provides a lifespan of autism services to kids and adults. Autism is now diagnosed in 1 in 54 kids, so there is a great need for high quality, life changing autism services.

What is your favorite thing about your career?
I love people. Building relationships with people is the core of any resource development program.

What are you most excited about working on staff at Christ Church?
Christ Church has been an important part of my life and spiritual development since I was in EYC in the 90s. Joining the staff feels like coming home to me!

What’s one work-related goal you want to accomplish in the next year?
I want to meet as many parishioners as I can!

Tell us about your family (furry friends included).
My husband, Eddie, and our daughter, Emily, and I live in Acadia in Piedmont. Eddie owns a construction equipment business. Emily is a rising 7th grader at CCES. We have two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Willy and Bentley, who love everybody they meet. Emily is now part of the EYC and I love that she is part of the youth group that meant so much to me when I was her age!

What would you sing at Karaoke night?
Carly Simon’s “You’re so vain!”

What do you like to do on a day off?
Go to the lake or to the beach!
