I’ve always been driven to work. Instead of playing outside, going to summer camps, or watching TV all day, I spent the summer of my first year as a teen working part time. At 19 years old, I finally owned up to how horrible of a student I was and dropped out of college to take a full-time position as a clerk at a law firm. Going through hundreds of hours of college courses to get to what I really wanted to learn was never appealing. I want to get right to the point of learning what I actually value.
At 20 years old, I moved on to working for a ministry in a small Texas town where I was reacquainted with my then future husband. Though I didn’t fully understand it at the time, there was a reason I was drawn to someone so different from myself. The Lord knew I needed someone to balance out my 100-mile-a-minute mind, my very driven personality, and the impossible standards of expectation that I constantly set on myself. His tenderness, patience, and unconditional love tore right through my performance-driven idea of love. I began to actually believe I was worthy apart from what I was able to accomplish. I say with the deepest conviction that I would not be where I am today without him relentlessly empowering and believing in me.
In 2015, I gave birth to our beautiful daughter, Olivia Joy. She is the pride of our lives. After a long day of work, there is nothing more refreshing than to spend time kissing the cheeks of my squishy, happy, energetic girl who thinks life is absolutely magical.
When I’m not spending time with my wonderful family, going for long runs, or training in jiu-jitsu, I get to hang out with the incredible Churchmedia and Jonah team helping bring life to the messages and missions of non-profits and redefining the digital face of the multifamily world. We design websites, build apps, develop software, and most importantly, drink lots of coffee.
I am passionate about using my gifts of leadership, discipline, and strategy to drive the standard of excellence in all that I do; to inspire those around me toward personal growth and potential; and to establish an anchor of provision and devotion to my family. I hope that as you engage me through my writing you’re challenged with perspectives you’ve never considered before. I hope that you become so addicted to your own growth and betterment that you can’t help but bring people along this journey with you. Let’s be magnets of integrity, humility, passion, and generosity that incite deep loyalties and connections with others who are driven toward selfless leadership.
