Director of Missionary Formation
My life’s goal has been to make this world a better place. When I was in middle school, I wanted to save the animals and be a marine biologist. In high school, I wanted to be an occupational therapist and help people live their best lives after surgery. In college, I discerned that working in youth ministry was a niche I could fill where my greatest passions and the culture’s greatest needs met.
Our world needs conversion of heart, specifically conversion to Jesus’ Sacred Heart. Biking for Babies offers life-changing conversion experiences in a really cool, unique way, so when I was asked to become a part of it in 2014, I was all in. Our Executive Team finds beauty in Spirit-led action, and I was drawn to that like a moth to the flame (whatever that actually means). To be able to allow Jesus to be the primary focus of everything that we do is such a gift, and Biking for Babies invites young people to do just that by using their existing gifts and talents to transform our culture into a Culture of Life.
At home, I invite my middle school and high school students to experience the same transformation through youth ministry. My husband Tim inspires me to always strive for excellence in all things, and my work life is no exception. Pruned trees bear more fruit, so I’ve taken off the Executive Director cap and the support crew role, passed both on to more than capable hands, and will be focusing on Missionary Formation. You’ve probably heard it said, “God does not call the equipped, He equips the called.” I firmly believe this statement and will do my best to allow the Spirit to guide me and our formation team to equip young adults to make a change starting with the B4B National Ride and ending only when we have a Culture of Life in America.
