I am originally from Fargo! Even though I moved away for a few years, I ended up back in the Fargo/Moorhead area in 2016. I have been working in worship ministry for years, but I started as a Pastoral Resident at Ignite in 2021. My philosophy of ministry is to encourage one another (Hebrews 10:24-25), to teach Scripture through singing (Colossians 3:16), and to care for others (Philippians 2:4). I have a lot of hobbies, but some of my top ones are hiking, camping, making coffee and/or apple cider, songwriting and playing soccer.
