I have been involved in student ministry in some capacity since 2001.  I started as a volunteer during my senior year of High School in my church’s Middle School group.  In college I was a part-time intern during the year and full-time intern during the summer months. I eventually was invited on staff than ordained a few years after that.  In 2013, God brought my family to the valley and I have found my ministry as a New Testament Bible Teacher. After the 2020 school year ended I have taken a new path. I spent some time as a curriculum developer at Grand Canyon University. I am currently working from home as an online history teacher and devoting more time to writing and blogging.


A memoir about life, death and finding hope.

Book promo and speaking Introduction

The Last Day of Regret

The memoir I have written is about my relationship with my sister Hannah who died in November of 2013. The book covers issues of depression, suicide, behavioral and mood disorders, drugs, pre-marital sex, judgement, boundaries, death, grief, regret, guilt and moves toward a message of hope that is founded in the Gospel message. I can cater my message to fit the needs of your adults and teenagers as you see appropriate.


I would be honored to be a guest speaker and share my story of how God has used this story to impact me and others around me. To get more information, contact me at
