I was born and raised in Pullman, WA with a sweet small town community. Leaving everything that was familiar to me to go to Boise State University was scary and exciting. Along with searching for new friends, new hobbies, and what I wanted to major in, I searched for what I believed about religion.
Having never attended church before, I took this fresh start as an opportunity. I heard for the first time that God loves us unconditionally and forgives us for everything with His grace. I was told that Jesus was sent to earth, lived a perfect life, then died for my sin making a way for me to have a relationship with God. I was drawn to this purpose and freedom in Christ.
After applying this to my daily life, practicing loving others well, and finding Christian community, I decided to follow God, and I got baptized.
I graduated with a degree in Graphic Design in 2015 and moved back to Pullman, not because it was familiar, but because I had known about Resonate Church and felt a call to be a part of this college church movement. I worked as a full-time Graphic Designer at a custom apparel company that year, and I saw God developing my skill, building my confidence, and showing me what He could do with me to serve His mission with my gifts.
I've been on staff at Resonate since June of 2016, and I am thankful I get to be a part of what God is doing on college campuses. My hope for Resonate is that we grow in awe of God and what He is doing in the lives of college students.
