The road to my current work in Berlin began as far back as my late teens. I grew up in Dallas, and first moved to Europe as an exchange student after high school. Although I visited Berlin during that year as a tourist, I could not have imagined then that I would eventually live here. Learning the German language that year influenced not only my choice of college, but also later provided for work and study opportunities in German-speaking Europe. Before crossing paths with Christian Associates, I worked in public schools, at a counseling center, and with an international church in Germany and in Austria. 

2016 marks 13 years serving with Christian Associates, and nearly 20 years living in Europe. During these years, my responsibilities within CA have expanded beyond the work on the ground in Berlin. In my role in the “People Systems” team, I work with new staff as they prepare to move to Europe.
