I've had the privilege of working at TEAM since September of 2011 and am humbled to play a role in bringing Christ to the nations. As the daughter of a pastor, I was exposed to missions and ministry at a young age. When I was twelve, I ventured overseas for the first time to St. Petersburg, Russia where I served with my family in a children's camp. It was during that time that my heart was captivated by global ministry. As I grew older, the Lord led me to the world class city of Chicago to study TESOL at Moody Bible Institute. While at Moody, I did an internship with TEAM missionaries Mark and Kris Crooks, teaching English in Mestre, Italy and building relationships with the beautiful Italian people. After I finished at Moody, I was given the opportunity to join staff in the Chicagoland area as a missions coach and have loved this unique blessing of walking with people through the process of going overseas!
