To see God work in peoples' lives as they open to His grace and truth is my greatest joy. Exploring His unconditional love with others never gets old.

I marvel at His kindness, generosity, and the freedom He offers us.

Why did I start South Bay Soul Care?

I have grown up and lived in the South Bay my entire life. God has planted me here for His purposes – in fact, my life verse has always been Isaiah 61:3 which talks about God’s people being planted like “oaks of righteousness…for the display of His splendor.” Having attended Presbyterian, Lutheran, Vineyard, Baptist, Covenant and Pentecostal churches, my church experience is wide. I served on staff at a large evangelical church for nearly 20 years, watching God work through brokenness and sin to bring salvation to hundreds of people. But I am hungry to see God do more in the South Bay.

Like the other members of the SBSC team, I earned my Masters Degree in Spiritual Formation and Soul Care from the Institute for Spiritual Formation at Talbot Theological Seminary, where I am currently serving as a staff spiritual director. I have the privilege of caring for faculty, staff and students.

Coming alongside others who are searching for “living waters” Jesus promised us — this is a great privilege for me. I would welcome the opportunity to join you in your journey with God.
