I’ve been a member of Immanuel for about two years and am grateful to be a part of this community. I am discovering that it is important to surround myself with Christians because on my own it’s very difficult and a struggle for me to live the Christian life.

Currently, I work for MidwesternUniversityMedicalSchool in Downers Grove, IL. We have programs in Dentistry, Pharmacy, Clinical Psychology, Physical Assistant, Podiatry, and Physical Therapy. I serve as an eResources Librarian which means I make sure people are getting access to information they need and want. Also, I manage a portion of the University’s web site. I work pretty closely with faculty and students. Many of our students are awesome and bright. They keep me feeling younger tooJ I’m also learning a ton related to the Health Sciences which is pretty cool.

I have an undergraduate degree in History and a Master’s in Library and Information Sciences. In the role I am in now, it requires me be detail oriented and is pretty technical, so I am always looking for ways in which I can be creative. I believe God designed us as creative beings.

In 2008, I graduated from Harrington College of Design with a degree in Interior Architecture. I love beauty. I love creating beauty and being surrounded by it not in a superficial way, but more so in a real, raw way… (if that makes any sense). I am hoping to venture out and do something with this degree eventually and put it to good use.

I am not 100% sure that God has me where I am right now for his purpose. I am learning to trust in Him. I do know, however, that over the years, God has humbled me, and as a result, I am able to relate to others in a more real and genuine way. I like to appear as if I have it all handled, look good, and am in control, but the truth is I’m not in control as much as I’d like to think I am. It’s really comforting to know that He is and has a plan for all of us. I continue to pray that God will help me and use me to service his purposes.

Thanks for reading…
