Director of Worship Arts
I grew up in Medford, OR, and came to Santa Barbara when I attended Westmont, and after graduating I couldn’t leave. My husband, Brian, and two girls, Linden (8) and Berrit (4), make life sweet and full of adventure. I love even numbers, traveling, and The Carpenters. Oh, and Sunday naps. I don’t eat mushrooms because I was made to forage for them in the forest when I was a child.
Favorite Place I've travelled: Honestly, anytime I get to travel is my favorite! Portugal and Spain are definitely near the top of the list. Palm Springs in the summer is always a fave (I think I’m part lizard).
Favorite Books & Authors: Ann Voskamp, 1,000 Gifts - Brennan Manning, Ragamuffin Gospel - Brene' Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection were all life changing for me. When I’m not looking for life changing, I’m a sucker for a good historical fiction or fantasy/sci-fi read.
What's your favorite thing about Oceanhills?: I love that our church always points to Jesus. I love that people can BELONG in our community even before they BELIEVE in Jesus. And then I love that when people BELIEVE in who Jesus is, we get to cheer them on to BECOME the people Jesus has made them to be. And I just really love our people… this community. It’s pinch-me amazing.
Favorite Things to do in SB: Mission lawn picnics, discovering new Santa Barbara food, concerts at the Bowl, hiking Lizard’s Mouth, and spending time with friends.
