She also serves as a stage manager for Christmas productions and in guest services.
 
She is the middle child of 3 girls. Her dad was in the service so they moved around a lot – 2 foreign countries and 4 different states. She received her love for missions and giving back from her parents. Her first “family mission trip” was in 1977. She has enjoyed giving back ever since, but this is especially true while serving on construction mission trips with Builders for Christ and the West Metro Baptist Association.
