My husband and I have been long time supporters of First Image and now I am honored to be on the board. In highschool I regularly volunteered at Pregnancy Resource Centers and have always had a love for this ministry! I was adopted as a baby and I’m so thankful my young, unwed mother chose life for me. This impact on my life has reminded me daily how every life is created in God’s image and every baby is precious in His sight. I love how First Image offers the hope and love of Jesus Christ to women facing unwanted pregnancies and how we strive to mend the broken hearts of hurting women. I also love how First Image strives to protect the lives of unborn babies and believe in the sanctity of human life!

I am a wife of almost ten years to my wonderful husband Brian and we have three children, Hudson (5), Lincoln (4), and Piper (2 1/2). We live in Lake Oswego and go to River West Church. I graduated with my BSN from the University of Portland in 2007 and have been working in maternity nursing since 2008. I recently changed jobs to Meridian Park and love working at a hospital in my community. I work really part time and love my job…seeing life enter the world is such an amazing blessing and miracle! But my pride and joy are my children!! I’m so grateful God gave me these 3 amazing blessings and so thankful I get to be their mom.
