How do you support our patients and team?

“I support our clients by meeting with women for their initial intake, listening with love. It is my delight to then continue walking with them through their decision making process and hopefully continued pregnancy. I enjoy following up with patients, asking how they are doing and any other resources they are looking for. I support our team by showing up every day ready to serve alongside them with whatever the Lord throws at us, all in joy!”

What path led you to your role?

“While in college I had an internship at the pregnancy resource center in Duluth and loved working with the women and children there. After graduating from college, I went on a pilgrimage through Israel and while at the Sea of Galilee felt God calling me to be with the brokenhearted (Matthew 5:1-12). A friend told me about this position at Options for Women and after interviewing, I knew this was where God was asking me to be.”
