I love Jesus. I hope that’s what you always know about me first and foremost. I am a mother of two young boys and have an amazing husband. As both the Director of Missions at CommPres as well as the Executive Director of the Community Hope Center, my schedule stays very full. I am a certified candidate for ordination in the United Methodist Church, focusing on outreach through social justice in non-profit organizations, as a deacon serving in the world.

Previously, I served as the deputy director at Helping Others Make the Effort (HOME), a non-profit committed to ending homelessness in Osceola County. I also served as development associate for HOME and was an accomplished grant writer and fundraiser for the organization. I have been a freelance writer and photographer for the United Methodist E-Review, the program and evangelism director for the First United Methodist Church of Kissimmee and a feature reporter, columnist, and page designer for The El-Dorado News-Times in El Dorado, Arkansas.

In 2004, I graduated cum laude from Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas with a Bachelor of Arts in mass media. In 2006, I graduated from Henderson State with a Master of Arts in art history and liberal arts. In 2012, I graduated with a master’s degree in Christian leadership with an emphasis in missions from Asbury Theological Seminary in Wymore, Kentucky.

I want everyone who comes to our church to feel love and acceptance as well as everyone who walks through the doors of The Community Hope Center.
