Since 1991, Tami and her husband Steve have co-labored in three church plants and currently serve Walnut Creek Presbyterian Church in Columbus, Ohio. As associate director and co-founder of Parakaleo, she shares a life of gospel joy, hugs, and hope in Christ with church planting spouses and women in her community. Tami loves opening her home and mentoring women (chocolate is usually involved in both). She loves giving things away, which kept her from a career in sales, but led to the discovery of a passion for giving away hope in Christ. As crazy as it may sound, she enjoys attending her denomination’s General Assembly, going to church planting conferences, and serving at assessment centers. The daughter and sister of professional football coaches, Tami has become one herself, coaching women through life and ministry. She is a Creative Results Management Graduate Coach.
Tami is a member of Steeler Nation and additional fanaticisms include organizing closets, drawers, homes, and churches. She is a retired nurse, a retired home school mom, and the sometimes tired but never retired mother of three.
