Two words drive me: "life change." I'm amazed by the grace of God that shows up as He changes lives. I love to hear, see, witness and be part of stories of God at work in our community.

What gets me up every morning and energizes me is all the people I meet during the day. From the wee ones to the older ones, each has a story and as I listen and interact with them, I am invited into their lives. A great privilege!

I am currently attending Pacific Life Bible College to learn more about the Bible, cultural backgrounds, and music. I love learning, questioning, and exploring ideas, so I'm so stoked to work and learn alongside everyone at Gracepoint. On a side note, if anyone knows how to unicycle or slack line, let me know--I'm looking for more circus friends.

Social Issues Researcher (Intern)

As a recent alumni of Regent College and a current counseling student at Adler University; I've found myself increasingly curious about this idea of making "peace with the proximate" - to live as a person in relationship to people in the place I set my feet. I'm eager to see what this might look like in practice for Gracepoint community, as we work together this fall.
