Hey there!  Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you find this site helpful in getting to know me a little better.  Although, I must say that I would much rather be sitting down and chatting with you over a cup of coffee.  But until then…

Besides being the wife of an amazing man and the mother of three of the coolest guys I know, I’m also the Family & Discipleship Pastor at GT Church, a thriving church in Reading, Pennsylvania where I provide vision and leadership for our Kids and Student Ministries as well as GT’s discipleship pathway-  from the first-time guest experience through life groups.  I also serve on the Executive Leadership Team where I help to provide strategic direction and visionary leadership for the church.

I’m super passionate about volunteers and I especially love developing leaders by creating environments where people can grow in their faith and discover their unique, God-given purpose.  Because Jesus saved my life,  and because the church believed in me enough to give this very dysfunctional girl a fresh start, I discovered a new way to look at life and an opportunity to be a part of something so much bigger than myself through my volunteer experience. This is why I’m so passionate about equipping the church to recognize volunteer opportunities as an incredible catalyst for spiritual growth.  It’s that passion, along with my personal experiences that helped inspire me to write a book called The Volunteer Project: Stop Recruiting. Start Retaining.

The past several years have been incredibly rewarding as I’ve had the honor of traveling and speaking at several amazing conferences such as The Orange Conference, Orange Tour & SALT Nashville. My diverse life and business experiences have allowed me to coach and connect with audiences around the world, ranging from church leaders and volunteer teams to corporate executives.
