I grew up in the Battle Creek area. I graduated from the University of Michigan where I attended on a full track/cross country scholarship. After college, I worked in the marketing department for a minor league baseball team in California. After moving back to Battle Creek, I married my husband Jason. We have two daughters, Emily and Olivia. After spending some time as a stay-at-home mom and a distance track coach at Olivet College I decided to work a few afternoons at Battle Creek Christian. I fell in love working with kids and families and decided this was truly my passion! I started pursuing a degree in early childhood and spent some time as lead preschool teacher before taking on the director role. I obtained my associates in early childhood from Kellogg Community College and hope to pursue my masters someday. I truly love my job! I love working with families, children and others who are passionate about children. Most importantly, I love that I work in an environment where we can pray, worship and share God’s word with others. I have been with Battle Creek Christian since 2006 and plan on many more years!
