I grew up in Wisconsin (yes, I love cheese) but moved to the Iowa/South Dakota area and went to three more high schools before graduation in 2003. Becoming a nurse at 19 years old was a huge accomplishment for me but God recently revealed a different path. Although resistant at first, I decided to follow His calling, abandon all control, and jump into this role. I have always loved kids and had a passion for healthy families but here I get to guide them all in a way that is full of love and eternal reward! I feel so fortunate that myself, my husband of 8 years – Cody, and our three kids – Lexi, Cohen, & Layton, get to be a part of this family who are passionate about bringing joy to Jesus and experiencing joy in Him!
