I am from Oswego, Illinois, about an hour outside of Chicago! I come from a family of 6 - my Mom and Dad and my siblings Lucy, Gus, and Phoebe. I am engaged to my fiancé Antonio and we are getting married July 2023! I was raised in Christian home and was brought up in a family that emphasized the importance of God's Word and his saving grace. When I was in high school, I came to realize how important learning about God truly is, which led me to obtain my bachelor’s degree in theology from Moody Bible Institute.

I am in my second year of the Master of Arts of Religion program at Westminster Theological Seminary. When I moved to PA in 2021, I knew I wanted to get plugged into a church as soon as possible. After visiting Proclamation, I knew I wanted to stay. I have felt so welcomed here and am so thankful to be a part of this church family.

I have always wanted to teach, and it has been a wonderful opportunity to be able to teach the girls in the youth group here. I have felt that the Lord has been affirming my call to teach while in this role. I am currently teaching the youth group girls on a bi-weekly basis has allowed me to test and try my giftings, with the Lord using each opportunity to lead and teach as a means to grow my gifting as a teacher.

Fun fact: I've been in over 30 full scale musical productions from ages 6-17! Though I haven't done any since high school, I still love musical theater!
