Committee on Lay Leadership, 2017
I moved to Ames, Iowa in 2009 from Long Island, New York to pursue my Ph.D. in Education at Iowa State University. During that process, I met my husband (Michael Haedicke), moved to Des Moines, and discovered Trinity/Las Americas. I graduated in August 2015 and currently work full-time at Iowa State on initiatives related to improving educational opportunities for low-income and first-generation college students. I feel so privileged to be part of a church community that lives out its social justice mission in tangible ways, each and every day.
