What is your hope for the future of HLO?
I look forward to the day we will be able to fund a full-time missionary in Bucharest. I am excited about engaging and investing in the children at our sponsored orphanages on a long-term basis. I desire to see even more lives transformed because of the efforts of His Little Ones in the years to come.

Board member since 2006

What motivates you to serve?
Ever since I was a little girl I have had a passion and desire to help orphans. Growing up in Eastern Europe, I remember the orphanage right across the street from my school. I had a few classmates who were orphans, and I often found myself trying to help them. As a board member I have seen the smiles on HLO children’s faces, and have noticed the sparkle of hope in their eyes. This fills my heart with joy.

Favorite toy? Stuffed Panda Bears

What motivates you to serve?

Knowing that I can use a small part of the gifts and resources God has given me to help others is important to me. Seeing Him move in children’s lives across the world in Romania is an incredible joy and a blessing beyond compare. I look forward to what God will do next.

Favorite toy? My First Computer.
