Director of Communications
Growing up in the Washington DC area, Grace’s life experiences gave her a deep appreciation for diverse communities as well as art. Her love for other cultures and language learners led Grace to pursue a degree in Teaching English as a Second Language. While in college, she started an Etsy shop to sell her artwork and designs.
Grace joined Waypoint church with her husband Dylan in 2016 after moving to Durham, NC and getting involved with an intentional living community in an internationally diverse apartment complex. After spending 4 years teaching English as a Second Language to immigrant and refugee students in Durham Public Schools, Grace felt led to invest more in her creative/artistic gifts and began taking graphic design classes. Around this same time, Waypoint was looking to hire a local director of Communications, so she joined the staff part-time.
She is excited to use her creative gifts to reflect God’s character as Creator and serve the church community through this position. Grace enjoys experiencing God through His creation in nature, in art, and in spending time with other people. In her free time, Grace also enjoys spending time with her husband and foster son, creating custom artwork for clients, and dreaming up new mural projects.
