I am blessed and humbled that God has called me to begin my full time ministry as your associate pastor and I am excited to journey with you in ministry!

I am the oldest of four girls and was born and raised just south of Richmond. My senior year in high school, I began listening to the call God had on my life and that following fall I began my time at Randolph-Macon College, as an A. Purnell Bailey Pre-ministerial scholar.  After I graduated from college, I entered into Duke Divinity School and graduated May of 2015 with a Master’s of Divinity. As I have explored my call to ministry I have served in various internships in churches, in a hospital, at the Virginia Conference Office, and at a United Methodist Children’s Home.

My husband Robert and I met in youth group in high school and got married in August of 2014. Robert teaches 3rd and 4th grade special education at DC Scholars Public Charter School. We have a Cairn Terrier, Myra, who looks like Toto from the Wizard of Oz. We enjoy exploring new places, getting to know new people, and spending time outdoors hiking, biking, sailing, and walking our dog.

We are excited to be a part of your church family!

  6. Find a gratitude partner and share together daily or weekly.
  7. Tell someone how much they mean to you.
  8. Put a positive spin on your negative thoughts (You’re home with a sprained ankle but you get to read the book you’ve had by your chair for months.)
  9. Go on a gratitude walk, carefully observing and saying thank…
