Life Story

Growing up, I lived in several different cities, but I spent the most time in Plano, so I consider that to be my hometown. My parents divorced when I was young, so it was always with my mom and her side of the family. We are all super close, which I am incredibly grateful for. My mom and grandma had a significant impact on my spiritual walk. They made sure that I knew the gospel and made sure that we attended a church that made it a point to share the gospel every Sunday.

I went to college at the University of North Texas and planned on being an elementary school teacher. The Lord had other plans. I grew tremendously in my faith during college and got plugged into the church that I attended. I served as a leader for the college ministry and the student ministry. I enjoyed serving with the students and felt drawn to it more than I did teaching. I loved seeing the students learn about the Lord and grow in their relationship with Him, and I thought that to do that as a job would be amazing.

After graduating from college, I attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and earned a degree in Christian Education with an emphasis in Student Ministry. I have been working with youth of different ages and in different environments for the past couple of years. I have learned from them, and I cherish the moments spent with them. I am looking forward to getting to know more students and seeing them learn about the Lord, grow in Him, and do work for His kingdom.

Hope for The Village Church

My hope is that we would be used by the Lord in making Him known to the world. I hope that our church will continue to seek out what God has called us to and go obediently in that calling. I hope that the church will love the people in and around the church and equip and encourage the believers of the church to love, obey, and trust the Lord and go out and share the gospel with those around them.
