I have known the love of God all my life.  I was very fortunate to have been raised by godly parents and have always had a relationship with our Lord. I accepted Christ at the age of 11 and was baptized at First Presbyterian Church in Marion.  I have been blessed with several very hard trials in my life that brought out a compassion for helping others. My hope is to use the grace and peace that God gave me during those hard times and help others find the blessings in their life during their walks in the valley.

I was born on the coast of NC in a town called “Little Washington” and moved to Marion at the age of 6.  I live in Old Fort with my husband Patrick, our dog Jake, cat Pepper, 10 quacking ducks and a loud Mother Goose.  We have a blended family of 4 adult children.

I started attending Grace Community Church in 2005 and started working on staff in January 2020.  My career experience has been in business operations, sales, and personnel which I now bring all that experience to Grace.

I love to be around happy people.  I tend to take life too seriously which costs me too much money in massages to relieve my stress.  I believe that if everyone would wake up with the attitude to “love and encourage” others daily the world would be a better place!
