About Us — Soul Care
Hiking and backpacking are my favorite pastimes. I believe beauty heals and open our souls in powerful and generative ways. I am mom to three married daughters and one college aged son. I have broad church experience across multiple traditions — Evangelical, Vineyard, Four Square and Presbyterian. May the face of our Lord Jesus shine upon you and bring you joy and peace. It was during my journey at ISF that my life opened up to myself, God, and others in profound ways.
I have worked in pastoral ministry and church leadership for 8 years and have experienced powerful movements of the Holy Spirit in my charismatic church background - but it was my journey at ISF that allowed me to grow in deeper awareness of God and myself, to acknowledge my pain and reclaim my story, and to discern the deep workings of the Holy Spirit in a contemplative way of being. I consider myself a wounded healer who loves to journey alongside others in sacred, loving space.
Meeting God in Loneliness
I have a heart for Christian leaders who need a place of refuge. During my time there I received training in spiritual direction and found it to be such a lovely way in which to journey with others. I currently offer individual and group direction for men and women, and also am available for chapel and retreat planning.
My interests lie in helping others to freely approach the Lord, bringing this honesty into community, and creativity for the non-artist.
ReNew helps strengthen the souls of Christian leaders so they thrive in every season.
I work for Biola University, offering spiritual direction as well as providing administrative support for the career development center. I live in La Habra, California and thoroughly enjoy engaging in beauty: the company of good friends, interesting films, flavorful meals, reading a book, listening to a podcast or music, and a rich cup of coffee.

Receiving spiritual direction has been a gift in my life and it is an honor to offer spiritual direction. It would be a privilege to journey with you and bear witness to the invitations and ways God is revealing His love and care for you. Through the program, I was trained as a spiritual director. My philosophy as a spiritual director has been to continue to grow in my own relationship with God and self-discovery so that I can help walk with and lead others in their own spiritual journey. I am personally passionate about the ministry of prayer and healing.
