I started working for the BSHOP in Fall 2017 with the Mission School. I grew up in the suburbs of Grand Rapids and have been blessed to attend Christian schools my whole life. I graduated from Kuyper College with a Pre-Seminary and Bible majors and a Youth Ministry minor in 2016. After graduating from Kuyper, I made the decision to attend Calvin Seminary and was invited to be a part of their apprenticeship program which led me to work in a church in northern California as the middle school youth director. The apprenticeship program was discontinued for distance students after a year, so I moved back to Grand Rapids without any plans other than to continue with school. God has blessed me with gifts of discipleship, teaching, and outreach, so as I sought the Lord for what was next for me, he led me to the BSHOP. At the BSHOP, I love one on one discipleship and prayer walking as well as helping out in the kitchen. In my free time I enjoy running, baking, going on walks, deep conversations, spontaneous adventures and spending time with family and friends.
