Director of Youth Ministries & FCC Parent Community
I have enjoyed leading Youth Ministry for 14 years, working in both the United Methodist Church and First Congregational United Church of Christ. My passion for working with preteens and teens has been life long, and I truly enjoy getting to know them and their families!
Whether we are engaging in structured learning time, service projects, or hanging out and having fun, the value of the time spent together is immense. I believe young people are one of our most precious resources, and we can learn so much when we take time to truly see and hear them. I make it my mission to remind them and others of the worth and power of our youth, so they may realize their full potential and be recognized for it. The goal in my ministry is to help these beautiful humans grow in their faith, learn to love themselves and others, and discover the joy of helping make the world a better place. One of the greatest gifts for me is seeing my former students as adults! Staying connected with them and seeing the wonderful paths they have carved out for themselves in this world keeps me inspired to work with new generations of youth.
