Working at Summit Ridge has been an answer to my prayers! I believe that I was led to this job and have a great purpose within the school. I enjoy being a part of the children’s lives and strive to make all feel welcome, safe, and loved. My favorite verse to encapsulate our vision for the school is Proverbs 22:6:

Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.

I love that we are planting seeds of goodness, love, hope, and grace in the hearts of these children. I hope that we touch their lives in ways that impact them forever!

I have been married to my husband Nate since 1997 and we have three children. I am a fifth generation Sparks Nevadan and I have a deep love for our city! I graduated from UNR with a degree in Human Development and Family Studies. My family and I have attended Summit Church for more than 16 years. The school and the ministries of this church are amazing!
