Young Adult & Family Ministeroffice: 703.425.3580 x255

I work with an incredible staff and volunteer team to dream and carry out opportunities for young adults (ages 18–35) and young families (those with children in 6th grade and below) to worship, connect and serve in ways that are relevant to them.  My primary role is supporting small groups that meet various needs and interests, and ensuring there are a variety of options for those within our community and beyond to get more connected to God and each other.  What I love most about this job is that it's all about sharing life during this season.

My husband and I came to Christ Church as part of our youth group in high school and decided to spend some time here in 2009 to see if it could be our adult church home.  I was finishing up my Master of Divinity/Master of Social Work degree at the time, and soon after ended up serving as the interim youth director before joining the staff the next summer.  My husband, Ryan, is an engineer for the Army as a civilian and reservist.  We have two sons—Luke, who loves Greentree, and our new baby, Noah—and we have a dog, Samson.
