Born and raised in lower Bucks, my grandparents owned and operated a deli in Croydon Pa which is where I spent most of my life. Hockey was a major part of my childhood, playing with my cousins everyday since we all lived within 5 streets of each other. During my freshman year of college at Cairn University, I was a part of the Wisconsin Wilderness campus where I lived in the middle of nowhere in the Northwoods for a year. I graduated from Cairn in 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in Youth and Family Ministry, and again in 2019 with  my Master of Divinity.


Why Youth Ministry?

I love youth ministry because kids have so much potential to change the world. I also love working with students because they are so relational and what you see is what you get with them. I also love to be crazy and show teens that the church is an accepting place for them.
