I was raised in Montgomery, PA and graduated from Montgomery Area High School before coming to Bloomsburg University. I received a B.A. in English and went on to work in multiple fields before surrendering to my call to ministry. I attended seminary at Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C.

I served as a certified lay speaker/minister until becoming a local licensed pastor in 2013. I have served at Jersey Shore First UMC, Jersey Shore, Calvary UMC in Lawrenceville and now I am appointed to be here with you in Lightstreet.

My husband, Terry and I have been married for 28 years and we have 3 children and 3 grandchildren. In my down time, I enjoy rag quilting, gardening and college football.
