I joined the staff of New Life Dresher when I returned to America in 2005, after serving 15 years overseas (in Poland and Russia) with Cru. Graduating Western Michigan University in Music Therapy, I pursued a counseling degree from Philadelphia Biblical University (now Cairn University) on furloughs from Russia, in order to better mentor and disciple people headed toward or already on the mission field.
I am a Missions Coordinator and love nothing better than to see fellow believers mobilized into and enjoying cross-cultural ministry! The highlight of my week is teaching ESL to immigrants from over 20 different nations living in NE Philadelphia. My role at New Life includes overseeing the global and local partnerships the church has formed, shepherding missionaries from NLD on the field, and generally fanning the flames of reaching the world with the Gospel, which is part of the DNA of New Life.
If you’re looking for me on my days off, you’ll most likely find me curled up with a good book at home, working in my garden, or watching reruns of NCIS and Blue Bloods.
