About Me

I lived in North Carolina until five years ago when I moved to South Carolina near Myrtle Beach with every intention of retiring. However, I ended up working a few more years. Currently, I am finishing up my Doctor of Ministry with the cognate of Pastoral Counseling from Liberty University. I love to study the Bible and help people who are hurting.

I graduated from Campbell University in Buies Creek, NC. with my MDiv, Master’s in Divinity. I completed a one-year residency as a chaplain in a level one trauma center at Vidant Medical Center, in Greenville, NC, which consists of five units of Clinical Pastoral Education.

My hobbies are nature walks, reading, and decorating. I currently facilitate Grief Share at my church.

My husband and I have five children and fourteen grandchildren. We feel blessed. 

I hope to one day soon have a coffee shop ministry.
