I coordinate volunteers and contacts with the faith and business community for Macomb County Habitat for Humanity. We build strength, stability, self-reliance and shelter. We partner with families who want to improve their shelter options by building new or rehabbing existing homes within our county, that they purchase with a low interest mortgage we provide. I enjoy working alongside the families as they complete their 250 hours of "sweat equity" on the build site, in financial and budgeting classes and other ways.
I also lead trips and travel to other countries to build homes with Habitat for those in need - soon to total 13 countries with 15 teams. In addition, I enjoy photography, gardening, kayaking and reading, and have been trained in disaster response through the LCMS and Habitat.
