I was born and raised in Chattanooga, TN and graduated from Boyd-Buchanan. Growing up, I spent my summers at the lake and playing softball which I still enjoy. I actually attend Camp Ridgedale from age 5 until … well, I am still here.
In November of 2016 I was hired by Ridgedale Baptist Church to be the Director of Community Kids/Camp Ridgedale. I began my journey with this ministry in 2009. While in Chattanooga every summer during college, I worked at Camp Ridgedale as summer camp counselor for three years and then promoted to cabin coordinator for my last two years.
I graduated from East Tennessee State University in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science in Human Services, a concentration in Human Development, and a minor in Early Childhood Education. After graduating, I began working full time at Junior Achievement. In 2015, I was asked to return to Community Kids/ Camp Ridgedale and take on a full time administrative role with the ministry after working two years at Junior Achievement.
The Community Kids/ Camp Ridgedale ministry of Ridgedale Baptist Church has been one of the biggest blessings of my life.
