Tell us about your family/where you grew up/went to college
Both my husband Jonathan and I are Quad City natives. We currently live in Eldridge with our joyful 22-month-old daughter Abigail. I grew up in Bettendorf and graduated from Scott Community College with an Associate’s Degree in liberal arts.
What makes you, you?
Community with my family and friends. Right now I am embracing and loving this season of motherhood and enjoying spending quality time with my family. My husband and I are regulars at our friend’s local gym where we train. I am an avid coffee drinker and enjoy connecting with friends over a cup. I love to cook and bring my friends and family together over a meal.
What are you looking forward to?
After having had the incredible opportunity of growing up at St. Paul and witnessing the growth and impact it has on our community, I am excited to be a part of the mission in a new way. I look forward to connecting with members and partnering with staff and volunteers to continue the success of the Book Corner.
What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about people and connecting with others. Hospitality and making everyone feel welcome excites me.
You’ve been at St. Paul your whole life. Tell us a little about your background here and a few favorite memories.
Growing up at St. Paul was such a beautiful experience. I loved singing in the choir, leading Sun Dance, volunteering at Vacation Bible School, and working in the nursery on Sunday mornings. What’s most memorable are all the connections I’ve made, and it’s a joy that I get to continue building those connections, now with my own daughter.
