I’m pleased to call Santa Rosa home for after living in multiple parts of the country throughout my life (Maryland, Ohio, Seattle, and Los Angeles). My husband Todd, our two children, and I moved here for me attend San Francisco Theological Seminary and for Todd to continue his work at Keysight Technologies…and we happily decided to stay after I graduated with my Masters in Divinity.
Before coming to First Pres, I served as the Interim Pastor of Knox Presbyterian Church of Santa Rosa. As a solo pastor, I got hands-on experience in all aspects of pastoral work, children’s ministry, and church administration. I am grateful to bring this experience to the team at First Pres. I especially love preaching, teaching, pastoral care, and have a heart for ministering to people in all stages of life.
Once upon a time, I appeared professionally on screen in television and commercials. For fun, I break boards in taekwondo, bake, run, read, and enjoy movie nights snuggled on the couch with my family and our adorable 7 lb. chihuahua-mix Wyatt.
