Children's Ministry Director:
Originally from upstate New York, my family and I moved to Arizona in 2011. We came west seeking better job opportunities, great weather, and to spend time with family. My husband, Chris and I married in 2000 and we have two fantastic children, Macayla and Ethan. I have a degree in elementary education and I have spent my career (more than 20 years) working with children in a multitude of capacities, including: teacher, administrator, trainer, and mentor. I most recently worked for a non-profit organization in Phoenix, helping to improve the quality of childcare throughout Arizona. The Lord led us to Maricopa Springs in 2014 and I quickly became a dedicated volunteer in the Cove for three years. In 2017, the Lord called me to make ministering to children my full-time focus. I have dedicated my career to ensuring children are growing and developing with strong, healthy foundations. I believe that the love of Jesus is instrumental in their developmental foundation. I love helping children discover who Jesus is and find their purpose and identity in Christ. I am excited to be able to share my knowledge and experience with the families at MSFC and I thank you for your trust with your most precious gifts. I invite you to share your feedback as well as any suggestions you may have for the children’s ministry. I look forward to getting to know each of you and your children.
