I am a licensed local pastor in the Methodist denomination and part of the Florida conference. I have four children, all grown and three grandchildren. I also have three step-children. I am very blessed with a wonderful and loving family system.
I went back to school in 2002 while working full time and being a single mom. I graduated with my BA in Business Administration with a minor in communications from the University of Central Florida. Go Knights! It was in my final year at UCF that I felt God was calling me into ministry and after wrestling with that call, I enrolled and was accepted into the MDiv program at Asbury Theological Seminary. I graduated in 2013 and in June of 2016 was licensed as a local pastor. I know serve as the Associate Pastor to Grace United Methodist Church in Merritt Island Florida.
I had the wonderful experience of growing up on a farm in a small community near Galion, Ohio and I have many relatives that still live in the area. I go back to Ohio where my roots run deep as often as I can. Ohio holds a special place in my heart and it is where I go to find peace from the chaos of life. So much so that my husband and I have a get away home there.
My life on the farm instilled a deep love of nature and animals. I love to garden, althought I find gardening in Florida a challenge and not at all like Ohio! I have two cats, Ella and Layla.
I have a deep love of people and hope that my musings on matters of faith are helpful to those who choose to read my words.
