I grew up in a Pastor’s home in a small village outside of London, England. I have always known Jesus as my friend and I remember deciding and choosing Jesus to be Lord of my life at age 10. It wasn’t until my teenage and college years when I felt the Lord was drawing me to be fully committed and to live a life sold out for him. Shortly after I recommitted my life to Christ at 21, I moved to the USA as an international student. During my year abroad I met Ben, and shortly after graduating college we sensed God leading us to Milwaukee Wisconsin, so we got married and moved to the mid-west. After living there for 5 years, Ben and I felt God’s calling to move again and after much prayer we moved to Corvallis in 2014 and have been at Calvary ever since.
I have been involved in children’s ministry and family missions since I was a child and have always recognized the importance of teaching children God’s Word. God has done a remarkable work in growing and teaching me as a children’s worker and I am forever grateful and humbled by this calling to minister to families. It is such a joy and a privilege to be a part of God’s work raising a generation to love Jesus from a young age!
My favorite Bible character is Peter – I can relate to his story of redemption!! Most of my time outside of church is playing with trucks and trains… I am a mum to a little boy, Malachi, and a sweet girl Bella-Charis. We love the coast and the mountains and when we can, we love to visit family in California and England.
