Sunrise over the Wheat Field

I was born in Paris, France into a Christian family. My journey has taken me to many places and cultures like France, Brazil, Malaysia, Cambodia, and Kosovo - these places shaped my understanding of myself and of God. My ministry passion is to inspire, develop, and empower a generation of leaders who reflect Christ and make a lasting impact in their world. Together with my husband, Brett, we partner with the Lord in raising two beautiful children. We served with Alliance Missions for 18 years before I joined the SJCAC team in the Fall of 2022. My hobbies include exploring new places, international travels, and culinary arts.

I received a B.A. in Missiology/Psychology from Simpson University, an M.Div. , and a D.Min. in Leadership in a Global Context from Alliance Theological Seminary, New York.

They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.

​Isaiah 61:3b
