From Garrett Indiana, I have lived in Fort Wayne since 1989, working at D.O. McComb and Sons for 28 years. My wife Sara and I have three sons and a large Burmese Mountain Dog named Colt. My work life has always been driven by passions, purpose and enhanced outcomes.
As a Big for around 7 years starting in high school, I’ve always been around the mission. Getting an internship that led to a full-time job here was natural. Outside of work, I like to play video games, occasionally attempt to exercise and watch Netflix with my dog Fozzy. My favorite color is purple.
Working at BBBS for almost six years, I am in charge of recruitment, customer relations and enrollment. Married to Andrew and mother of two fur babies, Golden Retrievers Cub and Winnie. Both of us are Bishop Luers graduates, and we love being a Big Couple and watching moves in our spare time.
Hosting Match Activities every day is a little different and I get to enjoy the fun alongside our matches! I have one fur baby Nina, a Pitbull mix who is the sweetest big ball of energy around. You can normally find me exploring Fort Wayne, binge watching a reality TV show or listening to True Crime podcasts!
Raised in New Jersey, I have been in Fort Wayne the last 14 years! Happily married and proud mother of 3 beautiful and loving children, my husband and I became a Big Couple 8 years ago. The wonderful experience of mentoring and my passion to help kids inspired me to work for Big Brothers Big Sisters!
After playing softball and earning a literature degree at Eastern Michigan University, working for BBBS sets my heart on fire because we have the best and most fun team in the world! My husband and I have a French bulldog and an Olde English bulldog who smell like cornchips but we still love them.
BBBS gives me an outlet to use my skills gained from Purdue University and fulfills my passion for helping others. My husband, Ryan, and I have been a Big Couple for 5-plus years. We also have two little ones of our own, Ryley and Reagan. We love sports and are huge foodies!
Graduate of IPFW in Graphic Design and Animation, I have 6 years of graphic design and video experience and I have helped build the marketing department at Big Brothers Big Sisters. According to Shelley, I’m the magician who presses a button and makes everything look pretty.
Over several years, I’ve volunteered in various different organizations’ non-profit fundraising events in Fort Wayne! I have a passion for families, creativity, and sharing in others' gifts and talents! My mission is to encourage others and myself to be a light, dream big, receive big, and give big!
