I was born and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan and graduated from Grand Valley State University. I grew up knowing God, but made my faith my own while in college. I met my husband, Peter, while working at an Intervarsity Camp in the UP of Michigan and we were married in 2003. After living in Columbus, Ohio for a couple years we moved up to Stow. We have four children, Hannah (2004), Nathan (2007), Seth (2008) and Lily (2010). We’ve called Redemption Chapel our church home since 2011 and have loved being a part of this place! When I have a spare minute I love to run, spend time with my family or curl up with a good book.
