This past year, she went through School of Transformation with Pastor Kristi Graner, which is a ministry in Burnsville. It focuses on learning to hear the voice of God . This has created yet another pivotal shift in her life and added to the desire for helping others truly see what the Holy Spirit brings to our personal life and inspiring others to STEP UP and STEP IN to what God is calling them to do.

She absolutely loves empowering women to step inot their God-given identities and them run with it!
Her life verse is Jeremiah 29:11: For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
