Who I Am

I was raised in rural Wisconsin on my family’s dairy farm. I was also raised in a legalistic pseudo-Christian, non-Trinitarian cult.  However, at age twenty-one, I was born again by receiving God’s gift of His Son, Jesus Christ. As an adult I received years of personal, professional and spiritual mentorship while working at a local veterinary hospital with a DVM who was an elder at my church and had been the director of a veterinary technician program. I went on several short-term mission trips to Guatemala and passed the Veterinary Technician National Exam in preparation to serve with CVM. For over five years, I served as a Long Term Field worker with CVM in Uganda. After spending some time in the remote area of Karamoja working with the nomadic cattle keepers, I moved to Kampala. I taught practical surgical and nursing skills to students at Uganda’s only veterinary college.

My Work

I have returned to the US to work mostly full time in the family-owned business as my father is nearing retirement age. This allows me the opportunity to remain flexible to continue in part-time ministry with CVM in an associate role.

I am continuing to use my experiences, skills, and passions to encourage, challenge, empower, and mentor other veterinary professionals to serve others by living out their Christian faith. I am writing, traveling, speaking, leading, and mentoring as the need arises. My mission area is mostly around North America but doesn’t exclude an overseas short term trip.

My passions are mental health, apologetics, and discipleship. As someone who has walked through depression and C-PTSD, I hope to be a voice of hope to others struggling. The suicide, depression, and burnout rate among veterinary professionals in the US is among the highest of all professions. As someone raised in a cult, I know we need to be discerning and we need to defend our faith through sound Scriptural theology. We are called to know Christ and make Him known to the world around us, no matter the geographical location.

They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor. Isaiah 61:3b
