I was born and raised in Coshocton, Ohio. I graduated from Mount Vernon Nazarene University in 2013 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work and a minor in Criminal Justice. Before I began working with Journey Home, I was the Associate Pastor of Student Ministries at a church in Coshocton for 7 years. While there, I was responsible for all of the church’s programs for students – from the nursery to high school activities. I have a passion for encouraging and empowering young people and their families to succeed.
