What do you like best about coaching?
I enjoy helping people experience the reality that God not only desires to see u
grow but is more than able to help us grow.

What do you do to recharge on your day off?
Spending time in nature is always a joy, as well as reading or listening to a book, and making a yummy mess in the kitchen.

Why did you choose to do coaching?
I had two main reasons for getting into coaching. First, I wanted to learn how to ask better questions. Second, I wanted to develop a practical skill that would equip me to be of service to vulnerable youth one day.

What are your three favorite things?
1) Eating a pastry with a book on my lap and gazing out a train window while traveling to explore a city in Germany or Austria;

1.5) Landing at the airport in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, knowing that I’m going to eat baleadas with old friends.

2) When God gives me a sudden burst of creative inspiration to write a new hymn tune.

3) I love God and the quiet time we have in the morning before the rush of life begins.
