My faith in the saving grace of Jesus Christ is central to my life. It provides a daily communion and strong foundation for everything I do. He is my Rock when I am standing firm and my Redeemer when I fall (Ps. 19:14). I seem to connect most intimately with God in active, outdoor settings and feel called to encourage others to embrace a life of silence, solitude, simplicity, and surrender to find the Presence of God. Faith is the core of who I am. I aspire to be an inspirational leader in the field of my calling as well as a faithful encourager in life among colleagues, friends, and family.
