Kristy is the proud mother of three amazing, (sometimes truly wild), young men, Andrew, Nicholas, and Sam, who always keep her on her toes and thoroughly entertained.
She enjoys spending time outdoors with her family camping and going on new adventures. Her hobbies include hiking, gardening, and kayaking at the Nimisila Reservoir. She also loves all kinds of animals and has several different types of pets. Kristy enjoys traveling, exploring our amazing local geology, reading, writing, and learning about anything and everything.
Kristy has had a lifelong love of environmental science since her days as a girl scout and she earned her bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies from Kent State University in 2018. She hopes to use this education to find sustainable solutions to problems which are harming ecosystems and disproportionately impacting people who are struggling.
Since transitioning from Seminary Intern to Pastor of Community Development in 2016, Jennifer has led Harmony Springs engagement with the community and overseeing the development of our community Garden CSA.
Jennifer lives in Green, Ohio with her husband of 17 years and two elementary-aged boys.
She graduated from United Theological Seminary and is
a founding member of the Board of Directors for Newbridge Place in Lodi, Ohio. Newbridge is a long-term facility for persons with mental illness and traumatic brain injury with a focus on veterans.
Jennifer brings a passion for seeing the church engaged in our community through participation in community events, outreach, and aid as needs arise. Jennifer is excited about the future and where God will continue to lead her.
We are excited to have Jennifer's help in our effort to build bridges with the community of Green especially those who are searching for a church home or have no church affiliation.
