I am beyond excited to return to Center United Methodist Church to minister the light and love of Christ into the youth. I bring with me my husband, Clay, and our beautiful daughter, Adelae. Children have always been my passion and the foundation of my journey. I joined Center as a youth member in 7th grade and at the age of 14 expressed an interest in wanting to create a ministry for the 3rd – 5th graders. Soon after JOY Kids was born and is still going strong today. I led JOY Kids many years before entering my career as a teacher and assisting with the youth at Good Hope United Methodist Church. As I end my 4th year teaching, I will be pursuing my Masters in School Counseling at Liberty University while beginning my walk as a Youth Leader here at Center. I am thrilled for the many ways God is working in my life and look forward to pouring his love out to the youth and families at Center.
