I was born and raised in Lubbock, Texas and graduated from Texas Tech University with a bachelors and masters degree in accounting with a concentration in taxation (nerd!). I moved to Dallas and worked for Coopers and Lybrand for 5 years until I quit to stay home and be a full time Mom. When my daughter was about 2, I was called into ministry here at Custer Road.  I am so thankful to be able to combine my education with my spiritual gifts to serve the Lord in the role of Finance Director. 

I have been married to my wonderful husband Jeff for 20 years, and we have 3 amazing children – Scott, Adam and Natalie.

What do most people not know about you? When I graduated from college, I backpacked through Europe with my best friend for a month.

Who has inspired you the most in your life and why? I have been inspired by lots of people, but here are a few – my best friend’s grandmother who showed me what generosity and unconditional love looks like; my parents who showed me what true friendship looks like; a dear friend who showed me what living a holy life that is pleasing to God looks like; and my husband who shows me every day what aligning your priorities with God’s priorities looks like.
