I want to help you ditch the comparison trap + draw closer to Jesus right where you are!

I'm a Midwest radio personality, digital marketer, writer and soul encourager. Ripped jeans and messy kitchens make me happy. Coffee is my fuel. Jesus too!

I don't know how people get through life without Jesus!

I grew up in an abusive home. A Jaws of Life car accident took away my ability to run and participate in sports. It also started an endless battle with chronic pain and weight gain. I’m a thyroid cancer survivor! My vocal chords were damaged during surgery. I couldn’t speak for months and no longer can hit those high notes. My husband and I struggled for years with infertility and a painful failed adoption of three sweet littles ages 2, 4 and 6. That’s just the tip of the iceberg of the hard stuff I’ve endured. But God never left me during any of these trials and GUESS WHAT? He’s with you in your hard stuff too! 

We will never measure up to the high standards we set for ourselves. It sets us up for a cycle of shame and defeat we were never created for!

For years I tried to fit into a worldly mold that I could never achieve. One day I realized I was doing it in my Christian faith too! I was stuck in a comparison trap that was robbing me of the beauty and joy that God gives His children.

Let’s ditch our need for perfection and cherish the truth about who God says we are.

When we switch our mindset from perfection mode to Jesus mode, we can walk in the freedom that only Jesus provides!

You don’t have to be perfect. Keep leaning on the One who is!

Live for an audience of One.

I thrive on creativity

I’m a squiggle in a world of squares and triangles. I think outside the box and thrive on creativity. My world is not black and white, it’s bursting with color! Web and graphic design is my jam. Adult coloring books and hand lettering too. I’m not super crafty, but my sister is and she’s teaching me fun things!

Music + coffee are my love languages

I’ve been a fan of coffee since Grandma and I dunked doughnuts in her mug and I got the last sip with all the mushy pieces at the bottom. Super gross, right? I love to sing! I began leading worship at a large church at age 9. Clarinet was my jam as a kid. I’ve been trying to learn guitar for 20 years!

I'm an encourager

I left a cushy digital marketing job to go into ministry. I’m a digital content manager and onair personality for a regional Christian radio network. I also speak at women’s events and write for print + online. I get to encourage people daily for my job and I totally love it. It brings me joy! 


I write authentically about Jesus, faith, marriage + life, with a big dose of sass and humor.


I like free stuff and I cannot lie. Sign up for monthly emails and get freebies for fun.


I talk about Jesus daily as a radio personality, speak at retreats and write for publications.
