I was born in Ravenna, and eventually moved to Kent when I started working at Kent State. I accepted Christ as my Savior as a middle school student dealing with health issues. A strong youth program and wonderful summer camps helped me through some tough times. I have been married for 30 years and we have a great son. I joined the team here at Redemption in October 2020. I enjoy restoration, volunteering, and giving tours at a historic site in Mansfield.
