Where did you grow up?

Texarkana, AR

What was your first job ever?

As an assistant in my Dad’s construction company, I eventually worked my way up to carpenter before I moved to Little Rock.

What do you enjoy most about your job at Fellowship?

What I love most about my job at Fellowship is being able to see how my Brothers and Sisters in Christ across the world worship our heavenly Father. It is a passion and a privilege to be able to be a part of encouraging and supporting my global Christian family.

If you attended college, where did you go?

I received my Associate’s degree in Fine and Studio Art at Texarkana College and my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.

Tell us about your personal life! Family, hobbies, etc.

I met my wonderful husband Tanner when we were in 10th grade. We dated all through our schooling years and got married right after we graduated college. We do not have any children yet, but we do have a cat who I love and my husband tolerates. I love to cook, travel and study philosophy, psychology, and global sociology.

What’s your favorite food?


When/how did you begin your relationship with Jesus Christ?

I was born into a Christian family with parents who encouraged me to not only live out my beliefs but truly know what I believed. Growing up my Dad read the Bible to us at breakfast every morning and I saw both of my parents study the Word daily. Because of their example, I became a Believer in grade school. Looking back I was beyond blessed to have them instill those values in my brother and me at such a young age.

What’s one thing about you that others would be surprised to know?

I am a huge Lord of the Rings and Star Trek fan. For over a decade my family has held an annual Lord of the Rings marathon where we watch all 3 movies back-to-back. I also own all of the seasons to Star Trek Next Generation.
