Family Info: God brought a southern gentleman into my life and we’ve been married since 1994. We met during my many years of employment with Verizon. I have two beautiful daughters; one lives in New York pursuing her passion in the makeup and esthetics industry. The other daughter (stepdaughter) is in the nursing field and has two sons who are very active in sports and baking with “grandma”. The oldest is trying to decide where he wants to go to college and play football and the youngest… let’s just say a handful. I am a very proud mother and grandmother.

When did you join the staff of Aldersgate? May 21, 2018 (New kid on the block).

What did you do before joining Aldergate? I ministered to woman at New Life Solutions for over 9 years. I was the Center Manager at the Pregnancy Center, where I did options counseling with young girls/woman who found themselves in a crisis pregnancy. I also taught parenting classes and Passages, which is a Christ-centered abortion recovery Bible-study program, and one-on-one mentoring.

What do you do for fun? I enjoy spending time on my patio reading a good book, and creative writing.  I love hanging out with my husband: movies, eating out, flee markets, and even watching the Bucs (now that’s love!). Spending time with my grandsons is pretty special too!

Favorite books? Lots of favorite books: Celebration of Discipline, my Bible, books on spiritual growth-to name a few. However, I would prefer favorite authors:  Francine Rivers, Steven Furtick, A.W. Tozer, Tony Evans, Priscilla Shirer, and Greg Hinnant.

Who has influenced you the most in ministry/life? My mother, who taught me the importance of being intentional in loving others by the way she always made time to listen, love, pray and encourage others to seek God. Patty Elder (Woman’s Small Group Leader) encouraged me to be bold, pray the Word and be who God called me to be. The Holy Spirit influences me every day with an awareness of His presence, faithfulness, convictions and His love for me.
