My Family & Interests


I am first and foremost fascinated with the beings in my life. I adore my funny and laid-back-Californian husband Luke, who I have been married to since 2009 and our six pound, sweet, bubbly Chihuahua, Noella (who obviously suffers for nothing).


The three of us reside near Pittsburgh, PA and are currently doing life near the town I grew up in with my family. My dad has been a minister in the conservative evangelical church my entire life and my mom has been a business owner for as long as I can remember.

My parents made sure my older sister and I were in church twice a week, and they greatly invested in our spiritual lives. From the time I was in my mother’s womb, I was equipped & empowered to become the Christian leader I am today. I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends above all else, but I also love meeting new people.


In my free time I like to read, write, shop, ski, go to the beach, eat at new restaurants, binge on Netflix, take walks, and chat on social media. I am a girly girl at heart who simply wants to preach the good news and eat hot chocolate chip cookies on a daily basis.
