It’s hard to believe that I have been at HUMC since 1990! It continues to be an amazing journey to see both the church and myself change and grow over the years. I love this church and community – and continue to
see God’s hand in growing us closer to Him each day. I am totally sold out on relational ministry – I think when we ‘do life’ together it is what the church should be about. . . spending time together, investing in one another’s lives, sharing together, and more. I help launch church wide ministries that provide different avenues for people to connect with one another and with Christ. One of the key ways that happens, we believe, is in small groups. So the wider variety of small groups and more people involved the better!
I have had some exciting changes in my life this year. I am officially a pastor and appointed to HUMC! I have also begun seminary and I am an online student at United Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio! I am only three weeks in and already am learning so much!!
My role is varied and I love the fact that I get to do something new everyday. Besides overseeing our small groups, I work with church wide ministries and help resource our adult ministries, you can find me visiting,
meeting with leaders, preaching, planning events, and spending time with people!
I am the ‘East Coast’ representative on staff. I was born in New York City and grew up in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area. I have a B.A. from Boston College and an M.A. in Communication from Penn State University.
My husband Park and I have been married for 27 years. He is the Principal at Homestead High School. We have four children: Cameron (25) who is currently a third year law student at William and Mary. He is married to our beautiful daughter-in-law Sarah who is a first grade teacher. Our daughter Kyle (24) is married to our awesome son-in-law Josh. Kyle is launching her own business (she does invitations and cards and Christmas cards, etc). Josh is an 8th grade science teacher. Tanner (22) is in his senior year at Indiana University studying Elementary Education. He just spent this entire past summer in the Dominican Republic with Go Ministries. Mallory (19) is in her second years at Ball State and is an RA. She continues to pursue her love of music.
I love to read – mostly non-fiction, culture, leadership, and church growth books. I love listening to ESPN radio in the morning. And I love to listen to podcasted sermons. If you ever have any questions about the church don't hesitate to contact me!
