Hope grew up as a pastor’s kid living largely on the east coast. She has lived in Kansas for ten years. She is married to Monty, and they have a preschooler and a toddler.
In her spare time, Hope enjoys reading, knitting and crochet, cooking, watching Philadelphia Phillies baseball (she’s a fifth generation Philadelphia sports fan!), and spending lots of time with her family. Professionally, Hope loves new challenges and projects. She enjoys finding new ways to use technology to enhance church life.
Hope loves being part of the Shalom family and especially part of the church staff. She firmly believes in the mission of Shalom and in “following Jesus, we risk love” together!
