Here is a little about me.

I am a wife to Roger and the mother of four beautiful daughters. I grew up on a farm near Hicksville, Ohio where I raised sheep and was nurtured in a love for nature. I received my Bachelor's degree in Physical Therapy from The Ohio State University and practiced Physical Therapy for 30 years. I also completed my M.A. in Ministry Studies and Women's Leadership Studies from Grace College and Theological Seminary in Winona Lake, IN. I am also a certified Life and Leadership Coach.

I am a life-long student of the Scriptures, and I love nothing better than establishing, encouraging, and challenging others in their own faith in Jesus Christ. God Planted this disciplemaking purpose in my heart years ago, and it has been growing in me ever since. I have spent more than 30 years leading and walking with others as they grow to know Christ better.

Love God. Invest in people. That is my hope in all I do.

In May 2020, I accepted the call to join the staff of Navigators, a Christian missionary organization focused on making disciples through Life-to-Life ministry. The Navigators had built a solid foundation in my spiritual life back in my undergrad days, and everything I've learned since that time has been built on that foundation. My mission arm I Navigators Church Ministries, where we envision "Every church sending everyday disciplemakers to transform their everywhere."

Contact me if I can serve you or your church in the area of disciplemaking and/or coaching.


Loving God.
Investing in people.
