I have been going to church my whole life. I remember being at church every Sunday morning, Sunday night, Wednesday night, and any other day that my mom volunteered to help with something. We were usually the last people to leave the church building because my mom was usually talking to people. So it’s not surprising that I love to talk to people.

Brad and I met while we were in high school. We dated for 5 years before getting married in 1990. We lived in metro Atlanta with most of our family living fairly close. I was an elementary school teacher, teaching general and special education, for 28 years before retiring to move to Florida in 2019. I also was the director for our special needs class at our previous church. We have two beautiful daughters, Lauren and Kristen. Lauren lives in Winter Garden and loves Disney as much as her dad. She is an elementary school teacher in Orange County. Kristen, our youngest, lives with us. She provides entertainment, adventure and challenges for us daily as she shows us what it is like to have Down Syndrome. She can be found on the front row every Sunday and loves to sing. If she was given permission, she would choose the worship songs every week. 

We are so blessed to have found C3. Kristen decided that C3 was our new church home on the very first Sunday we visited. On our second visit she ran across the parking lot to get inside. I have grown so much in my walk with Jesus since we started attending C3. Every Sunday I learn something new about the Bible. It is an honor to be a part of leadership. I love meeting new people and building relationships between people. My goal is to help every person who walks through the doors at C3 find someone with whom they can connect. Hopefully that connection will help them draw personally closer to God. So, if you are not feeling connected, please come talk to me.
