I spent my childhood in Southern California, where my family and I attended school and a Catholic Church. We were very involved, and I enjoyed learning about Jesus and the value of loving other people. When I was twelve years old, my parents divorced and we moved to the Seattle area. This was a tough time for me, and I fell away from church.

I married in my twenties, and when I had a child, I knew I wanted her to experience learning about the Lord. My faith was sparked again and I got back on my path of spiritual growth. Church on the Ridge has helped me grow in my faith and given me many new relationships with other Christians through KOTR Preschool and my Community Group.

In 2013, I joined the teaching team at Kids on the Ridge Weekday Preschool as a lead teacher and was delighted that I could teach children about Jesus’ love for them. I enjoy the students and their constant quest to learn. It is a privilege to spend my days with young children and guide them academically—as well as teach the values of Jesus.

My free time is spent cooking for family and friends or enjoying the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
