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.
I have lived in Warsaw my entire life. My husband and I are new empty nesters and I’m anxiously awaiting grand babies. Until then, the love of my life is our rescue German Shepherd, Marshall. I have worked in nonprofit my entire adult life and I love the impact it makes. I have been a Big Sister for over 8 years and know firsthand the impact this program has on kids. I can’t wait to grow the program in Kosciusko!
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.
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!
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.
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!
I graduated from Indiana Tech in 2022 with a degree in Graphic Design and a huge passion to create things spontaneously! After being an intern at BBBS, I am happy to be assisting the development team in expanding their presence in the local area! A huge lover of video games, curating Spotify playlists, and learning K-Pop dances in my free time. Come see me perform annually at the local Fort Wayne Korea Festival sometimes!
