Q: Where were you before joining CBM?

Before joining CBM in January, I had served at Acadia Divinity College (ADC) for just over five years. I started as Manager of Recruitment & Admissions. My work included producing promotional materials in various formats, which resulted in the addition of the communications portfolio to my role, including managing a full visual rebrand of the organization in the first 6 months of added responsibilities.

Q: Can you tell us about the award you received for your work at ADC?

As part of my communications role with ADC, we presented stories in new formats that were visually appealing. At the prompting of ADC’s President, Rev. Dr. Anna Robbins, we submitted several pieces of our work for the Canadian Christian Communicators Association Awards in which we won three awards in 2021 and another five in 2022. One of these was in the Social Media Marketing Campaign category, showcasing that ministry looks different for everyone and exists outside the walls of the church as well as inside, a topic I’m very passionate about.

Q: How did your relationship with CBM begin?

In 2016, I was asked to lead a Kamp Tumaini team in Kenya with CBM. It was one of my first real leadership experiences where I was responsible for multiple aspects of an international trip while traveling with an intergenerational team. That was my first exposure to the integral model of mission, which was eye-opening in how to serve the global church in partnership. It was also my first sense of a call to tell stories and understand the privilege of having someone share and trust me with their story.

Q: What do you hope to bring to this current role as team lead?

I truly feel that God has called me to CBM and am trusting that there is purpose for the skillset I’ve been gifted with for this particular season. My greatest hope is that I will be able to help further CBM’s mission in that. There are so many incredible things that God is doing through CBM’s work around the world that’s been shared effectively by the storytellers before me. I want to be able to continue to tell great stories. And I hope to try new and creative ways to reach a broader audience. Good storytelling, through both words and visuals, is an invitation for others to consider how they can also participate and partner with what God is doing.

Q: What makes CBM unique as a ministry organization?

CBM emphasizes the local church and being able to support them well in partnership. Mutual learning and understanding are aspects people sometimes overlook. Yet CBM prioritizes partnership and collaboration through an integral mission model. One of CBM’s strengths is inviting different voices to the table to collaboratively determine the best way forward.


I’ve made a big move from Nova Scotia to Toronto to be situated closer to the CBM office. With this major transition, I’d like prayer in finding community.

Pray that I can tell stories well and invite people into something that’s so much bigger; our small part has a huge impact on what God is doing in the world.

I’m grateful to be here. CBM is doing incredible work, and this role is daunting but also exciting at the same time. Please pray that I’m able to confidently step into what God is calling me to.
