KidCo exists to empower kids and elevate their voices.


We're here to flip the social narrative that kids are not full people yet; that they can’t/don’t contribute to society; that they don’t have anything to say. 



I'm an advocate for children and families, a performer, author + illustrator, and former children’s pastor from Tennessee. I've had LOTS of different jobs in my life: from serving as a childcare provider and owning/operating an online stationery business to working as a Children’s Librarian and spending my summers leading music at summer camps across the country. But the thing that binds my journey together is a love for children and families.

I am an observer and a peacemaker at my core. My driving motivation, specifically when it comes to children, is to help communities and families see children as full people – not merely “the future,” but a very real part of our present reality. I am passionate about walking alongside children as they find their place in the world and as they seek to be understood and loved, just like we all do.
