Texas-born and Baptist-raised. My parents divorced when I was young which was heartbreaking, and as a child I never understood why. As an adult and Christ-follower, I now know that God can use something as broken as divorce for His glory Both of my parents remarried, so I have a “bonus” mom and dad. Because of my past experiences, I’m an advocate for stepparents and understand the struggles (and benefits) that kids growing up in blended families may have.
After moving away from the metroplex, I landed back in Dallas in 1996 and have been here ever since. I was very lukewarm in my faith until the Holy Spirit lit a fire in my heart in 2001 with a passion for teaching kids about the grace and love of Jesus Christ. I have been at Fellowship since 2004, starting as a volunteer in children’s ministry and coming onboard as an employee in 2013.
God gave me the gift of “Comforting Others.” I aspire to make people feel valued, loved, and supported regardless of where they are in their walk with Christ.
I am the operations administrator for our Kids Ministry. That’s just a fancy way of saying I’m in charge of the care and keeping of our spaces. I also oversee childcare and have the privilege of sharing Jesus Christ with our preschoolers through worship each Sunday in the Ark.
