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.
