As a summer intern after her freshman year, she fell in love with the ministry, the community, and the day camp coordinator, Ramiro. She moved to Berwyn when they married in 2021 and continued to volunteer until taking on her current position in 2022. Now, her loves include her daughter Rosie, music, reading, and baking.
