Associate Program Director
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

In my free time I enjoy hiking and exploring new places with my family.  I love traveling, weekends at the lake, watching sports, reading books and family game nights.   If it involves adventure, sports or anything outdoors, I am probably a fan!

What do you look forward to each time you come to work at Hearts & Minds?

The atmosphere of Hearts & Minds is my absolute favorite thing.  Getting to work side by side daily with inspirational coworkers, and build relationships with families and kiddos fills my heart.  I love getting the chance to pray together each morning and encourage each other through the peaks and valleys of life.  Hearts and Minds is just a truly special place and I’m so thankful I get to be a part of it.

How would your best friend describe you?

My best friend would probably describe me as someone who is always up for an adventure, ready to lend a hand and completely happy to just waste away a whole weekend relaxing at home with a good book and good food (cooked by someone else).

Tell us about your family!

My husband Eric is a superintendent for a construction company here in Omaha.  Our daughter Adley goes to school in Gretna.  She loves art, gymnastics, and cooking.  Our son Evan attends Hearts & Minds. He loves all things superheros and anything that makes a mess.  We have two fur babies that love to go on adventures with us and always seem to keep life interesting.
