It is my joy to be growing in the grace and knowledge of Christ with my fellow believers at North Wake.  As a child, I was taught about the gospel from my parents and the church we attended in Kentucky.  I knew I needed a Savior and chose to follow Jesus when I was 6 years old.  And He has been guiding me every day of my life. 

I joined North Wake in 2005 after moving back to the US.  I first became acquainted with NW in 2004 while living overseas when I met these three guys coming to lead a conference.  Larry, Daniel and Noah were fresh off the plane and that week was the first time Daniel and I sang together to lead worship. 

Since then, I have served in various roles at North Wake and around the world.  I spent a total of 10 years living in other countries, much of that time as a counselor for fellow cross-cultural workers, including children.  I love people of all ages and long to help others follow Jesus.  I have had the privilege of serving in NW’s children’s ministry (when I was in the country) and have enjoyed watching many kids grow up here.  It is my desire to help our families love Jesus, each other, and the people around us with a passion to see Jesus exalted and lives changed. 

In my down time, I love to drink coffee and read a book or visit with a friend.  My puppy Lularue keeps me from sitting quietly for too long.  I enjoy cooking meals and share with those around me.  And one of my all-time favorite movies is The Princess Bride.  So many great quotes!
