WHAT IS YOUR ROLE AT HOPE? 

I oversee the musical components of our Sunday services, which includes song selection, charting music, scheduling bands and musicians, leading rehearsals, and leading the congregation through musical worship. I also oversee the administrative side of the music volunteers on our worship arts team, which includes being the Planning Center “expert” for our Sunday experiences and special services.

IF YOU COULD BE ON A REALITY TV SHOW, WHICH ONE WOULD YOU CHOOSE AND WHY?

Fixer Upper or Tiny House Nation – I would love help finding and renovating a home, and I am slightly obsessed with tiny house living.

IF YOU COULD PICK UP A NEW SKILL IN AN INSTANT, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

Being handy around the house and with my car!

WHAT 2-3 FICTIONAL CHARACTERS WOULD YOU BE A COMBINATION OF?

Love this question! I feel like I am a combination of the sporty, competitive tomboy Monica Wright in Love & Basketball; the rule-following, achiever Leslie Knope in Parks & Rec; the adventurous, justice-seeker Wonder Woman; and finally, the artsy, quirky Juno MacGuff in Juno. I know I chose more than 3 characters, but we humans are complicated, and I felt like I needed 4 people to really give a more complete picture of who I am. 🙂

WHAT’S ONE FOOD YOU COULD EAT EVERY DAY OF YOUR LIFE? WHAT’S ONE FOOD YOU CAN’T STAND?

I could eat Mexican any and every day of my life. I can’t stand olives or blue cheese.
