I spent the majority of my growing up years in Chattanooga, TN. My incredibly loving parents and two brothers helped cultivate within me a love for the outdoors and Tennessee football. I began my relationship with the Lord at the age of eight and, through his work in my heart and life, developed a desire to pursue a vocation in ministry. This desire led me to Boyce College in Louisville, KY where I completed a “Church Ministry” degree. After graduation, the Lord provided an opportunity to be part of a church planting team and I was able to serve in multiple roles over the course of several years. I truly loved watching the Lord work and grow his church through that experience! Two and a half years ago, I accepted the job as a Resident Director at Cedarville University and moved to Cedarville. I am thankful the Lord led me to join the Grace family and would be honored to serve as a deaconess! My desire is to be faithful to the Lord and steward well the gifts He has given me by serving the church and community in this role.
