She currently is the Executive Director, Business Development for a national medical research company where she manages large pharma partnerships and systems development. She recently co-chaired the VUSA committee to write the Lilly Financial Wellbeing of Pastors grant and is passionate about developing sustainable infrastructure and gathering resources to better care for Vineyard pastors.
