What I Do as Program Director
I get to serve God through planning events at Cedar Lake Ministries and Catalyst Camps. Camp is one of my favorite events because of all the kids and summer staff that invade (in a good way) the grounds during the summer. It’s an exciting time of the year!

Favorite Food
Pizza with sausage and cheese. I love cheese and am proud to be a cheese head! My husband also got me hooked on pepperoni and pineapple pizza, only if ordered at Papa John’s, however.

Favorite Camp Activity
Where’s Waldo, an all-camp game where counselors dress up in crazy outfits and act goofy (always a good elements to any game), and campers have to figure out which counselor is Waldo or Wilma, find hidden Bible blocks and bags of “gold.”

About Me
I grew up coming to camp at Cedar Lake and then worked here during my college summers. My grandma, mother, uncles and siblings all went to camp here. Then, I met my now husband, Jens, while working on summer staff. As you might imagine, Cedar Lake Ministries and Catalyst Camps means a lot to my family and to me. And not just because of the family roots, but because we’ve experience God do amazing things in and through us through the ministry that happens here. And I’m honored, blessed and excited to be a part of it!
