I grew up in Sydney, Australia (of all places). I moved to Columbia, SC in 2012 to attend Columbia International University, where I graduated with a Master of Divinity seeking a career in either full time pastoral ministry or overseas missions. During my time in seminary, I developed a love for church planting and decided to pursue work in the workplace while supporting a local church plant in West Columbia. I chose to work with Thrivent because it allows me to pursue a career that helps christians, helps the church, and helps the community. Now I help christians to be wise and confident with their financial plans, and leverage their time and talents to give back and live generous lives.
