I was born and raised
in the Cincinnati Area. My husband and I met through BLOC and live across the
street from the after-school program site. He is the Director of After-School Programs
so we get the privilege of working together to serve the neighborhood we love.
I think of myself as an urban hippie. I love natural living in the inner
city. I have been working with BLOC on and off since 2015, but I started
consistently working here in 2017. I am the Mission Director for BLOC,
which means that I communicate, write itineraries, and serve alongside mission
teams wanting to come work with BLOC in serving the neighborhood of Price
Hill. I love Price Hill. I love the people. I love the neighborhood. And I
believe I have been called to show the love of Jesus here by living “life on
life” with my neighbors. I want everyone to come here, meet the people,
hear their stories, and fall in love with this neighborhood like I have. That’s
why I adore leading mission teams.
I also believe that
having a healthy team and taking care of your team is so important in ministry.
I am honored that I get to be a part of that by being the Girls Discipleship
Director for the After-School Program.
"Let the morning bring me word
of Your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in You. Show me the way I
should go, for to You I entrust my life." Psalm 143:8
