My family moved many times when I was growing up but spent the most time in northern New Jersey, suburbs of NYC. I graduated from the University of Delaware with a degree in Business Management and moved to the Washington D.C. area where I met my husband, Tom. After a few years in Pennsylvania, we settled back in Virginia and have lived in Loudoun County since 1991. We have three amazing, adult children, who are all married to wonderful people, and five beautiful grandchildren.
Our family started attending Crossroads in 1991 and our daughter was enrolled in HOPE Preschool the first year it opened. After volunteering in various roles, I started working in a part-time capacity at Crossroads in 1992. My role has changed many times over the years but primarily in the Operations and Administrative areas. I currently work full-time with our fantastic Crossroads/HOPE Preschool staff. Outside of work, I love spending time with our family…grandchildren are the best! I also enjoy cooking, baking, and entertaining.
Song I know by heart: I probably know every song from the late 70’s/early 80’s by heart in addition to several old musicals such as Sound of Music, My Fair Lady, South Pacific. If I could be reincarnated it would be as a Broadway star but for now, I stick to singing in my car!
Favorite vacation: Some of my favorite trips were to Normandy, France; Asia; and safari expeditions in Africa. I can’t wait to get back on the road and check more destinations off our list.

A song I know by heart: I’m a musician. I know too many songs to count!
My idea of a perfect day: My idea of a perfect day is a warm, sunny day at the beach with my family, my Kindle and plenty of good sunscreen.
Favorite vacation: My favorite travel was the first time my family and I went to Uganda on a mission trip. Not sure I’d call it a vacation but it was an unforgettable adventure and an experience which changed our lives forever.

KID'S MINISTRY DIRECTOR
I went to South Lakes High School and I am finishing my degree at UMGC where I am studying marketing. I am the middle child of two sisters and I was born and raised in the northern Virginia area. I started at Crossroads on August 1st, 2022 and am so incredibly excited to be here. Currently, my top three hobbies are gaming, lifting, and racing (both watching and participating).
Something I am trying to get better at: lifting. I know the basics but I am focused on improving technique and strength. My goal is to be able to understand it well enough to create my own workouts.
My idea of a perfect day: spend it all outside, enjoying a warm sun and a cool breeze with various activities such as a fun game or a nice walk.
My favorite Bible verse is the one I have tattooed over my heart: “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.” 1 Tim 4:12 NIV
