Assimilation Director


Family: I have been married to my wonderful husband since 1996. Just two years later our son, Parker, arrived. We were blessed again in 2002 with our daughter, Micah.

Spiritual Journey: I was saved as a child, but really felt like I had a deeper understanding of what a relationship with Jesus was all about after my son was born. A few years later a felt a call into full-time ministry, and through a series of events, I left behind my nursing career to answer that call.

Hobbies: I love binge-watching shows on Netflix with Bill, watching chick flicks with Micah, or Meet the Browns with Parker. I also like to run and shop for great bargains.

Favorite Food: I love food in general, but some of my favorite places to eat are Thai Valley, Italian Grille, and Rio Grande. …And I can’t live without coffee, Diet Dr. Pepper, chocolate or popcorn.

Favorite Place to Visit: Any beach where I can feel the sand between my toes and watch the tide roll in!

Favorite Scripture: And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28
