Second to just being loved by God, I am a mom, pastor and business owner and pretty much addicted to Diet Cokes and Frisco getaways. Prior to college, I spent one year studying the Bible at Ravencrest Chalet in Estes Park, then completed my undergrad in education at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, and my Masters in Leadership at Denver Seminary. I have worked in local churches since my twenties and spent a couple of years working with the international relief and development organization Food for the Hungry. I love reading entrepreneurial books, leadership books, and George MacDonald fairy tales, but most of all I love co-creating environments where people can encounter God and re-connect with Christ.
