My passion is to encourage people to welcome challenges, rise from failures and mistakes, and rebuild with perpetual hope, kindness, compassion and resiliency.

I’ve earned degrees from George Fox University and Yale University Divinity School, and I’m currently earning my PhD in Public Affairs & Policy at Portland State University. In addition to public speaking, I’m a public health wellness fund development director focusing on primary prevention and social determinants of health and equity.

A Pacific Northwest native, I enjoy cooking (eating), gardening, books, movies, music, and harmless shenanigans with my family in Oregon.
