“I’m Mike. My close friends call me Mikey. God has been good and has graced me with a wife and 3 children that I don’t deserve; and two dogs, but I think I deserve the dogs. I may have a problem with liking coffee too much, although tea is making a strong push. An Indiana native, we moved to Ohio 5 years ago and have served in our local house church ever since. I’m a photographer by day and when not taking photos, or being with the family I enjoy various activities of lumber-jacking, wood working, home remodeling, playing the guitar and cello (not at the same time), and brewing coffee. Lots of coffee.”

“I’m involved with Breath of Life Haiti because I have a passion for doing whatever we can to facilitate lasting change in Desarmes Haiti, and hopefully the surrounding areas. Everyone has something they can contribute, and we’re called to do so. Oh, and Ashley roped me into it.”

Kristin Sedlmeyer, RN

Parkview Health

“My name is Kristin Sedlmeyer. I have been married for 2 years to my husband Tony. We have a daughter named Hazel who is 8 months old. I am a registered nurse and work in the emergency department. I really enjoy spending time with my family and working on projects around our home. In the summer we love spending time out on the boat and working in our garden.”

“I have been apart of Breath of Life Haiti for almost two years now. When I was in college I went on a mission trip to Haiti and fell in love with the country and its people. I always knew that my relationship with Haiti wasn’t over, I was just waiting on the Lord to show me the next step. After learning about Breath of Life Haiti, I immediately wanted to get involved. It was like my two passions coming together; health care for moms and babies and Haiti.”
