I love helping people move towards wholeness in Christ. My 15+ years of vocational ministry experience in campus, church and outdoor settings is enriched with spiritual direction training from Leadership Transformations’ Selah program. This allows me to minister through: spiritual direction for individuals and groups, creative retreats, and outdoor adventure experiences.
