From a very early age, I had felt the pull in my heart to serve God and do His will. I accepted Christ at the age of 14 and felt the call of God to go to the mission field. I needed to prepare my life for service and was led to The Kentucky Mountain Bible College in Vancleve, KY. There I studied the Bible and Missions. Through the years my desire for missions never left my heart, but God chose for me to work in the local church and serve Him by singing, teaching, directing, and leading. I raised my family in Northern Kentucky area and my two children, Ben and Julie graduated from Campbell County High School. Later in life, I went to the University of Southern Mississippi and graduated with honors with a Bachelor of Science degree in Child Development and Family Relations.
Most of my life, I have been an Administrative Assistant. It is my vocation of choice. I have worked for hospitals, foundations, counseling offices and now the Kentucky Annual Conference. I joined the staff at the Northern Kentucky District in November of 2015. I love serving God in this office and using my talents for Him. Every day I feel fulfilled and at peace in the center of His will for me. I am also privileged to be a pastor's wife. My husband Jim is the pastor at the Trinity United Methodist Church in Maysville, KY. We serve and love the Lord together.
I love to read, play the piano and do jigsaw puzzles. I enjoy teaching in Women's ministries. I am working on a book of poems and stories and hope to get it published some day.
