I was born in Quincy, IL, but moved to Utah shortly after my birth and lived there until I was 6 ½. I then moved to Houston, TX, where I graduated from high school and went off to Texas Tech, which is where I met my husband Tim. We graduated in May 1986, married one month later, and moved to Dallas. We moved to Plano in 1989. I was in Human Resources at Ernst & Young for 9 years before resigning to be a stay at home mom, but joined the staff of Custer Road one month later in July 1997, assisting Rev. Donna Whitehead with the Stewardship Campaign. I became Director of Missions one year later, served a short 2 ½ year stint as Office Manager (2006-2009), and returned to my calling, Director of Missions. My son and daughter graduated from Texas Tech University and we are a proud Red Raider Family.
I love serving at Custer Road. Our family has always thought of it as a feel-good church and my children grew up in staff child care and Youth and Revelation. The church and the staff are a true blessing!
Favorite scripture: “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?’ When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’” Matthew 25:35-40
