“I have roasted marshmallows on a volcano (and melted the soles of my shoes at the same time).”
Originally from Colorado, I’ve had the amazing opportunity to travel all over the United States and world. I spent part of my career in the outdoor and camping industry, so zip lining, hiking and yes, even rappelling came with the job description!
But when Jesus tugs on your compass and places road markers along your path, you listen!
I discovered Hope Reins through a friend, who also encouraged me to put some roots down – and I’m thrilled I did. Hope Reins’ first core value, Jesus Heals, resonates with me. I’ve experienced His love in my own life, and it’s such a privilege to watch Him impact others – especially the kids we serve.
As a Certified Child Life Specialist, I worked with children, teens and their families in very stressful and traumatic situations within the hospital system. As you can imagine, there were heartbreaks and triumphs, just like at Hope Reins.
As Client Services Manager, I’m on the front lines helping our kids and families connect within our different programs as well as ensure they receive consistent and loving care. And, because you can convince me to engage in almost any outdoor activity, I’m looking forward to working with the horses, hanging out at the dock and hiking the beautiful trails that surround Hope Reins.
I’m certainly looking forward to our big fundraising hike, Hoofin’ It for Hope in September!
