Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.- Romans 12:2 (NIV)
I felt God leading me to Lakeside many years before I actually walked through the doors on Aug. 11, 2002, but I never imagined He would use me like He has. In 2004, I left a rewarding full-time career as a journalist in order to spend more time at home with my kids (who are now young adults). It was meant to be a part-time position to help cover the expenses for a few years until they were both in school full-time. But God had other plans. Throughout the years my role at Lakeside has changed but I am now the full-time Communications Director, overseeing content for our website, newsletter, and social media. I also help newcomers get connected, and I head up our Online Host Team and Photography Team. I firmly believe I am here by no accident and I absolutely love coming to work every single day! I am married to my husband, Rob and we have two boys in post-secondary. Both play varsity sports and we love nothing more than donning school attire and cheering from the stands.
