I am from Texarkana, Texas and I went to Liberty Eylau High School, graduating salutatorian. I have an AA in Music Education from Kilgore College, graduating With High Honors, and a Bachelor of Music Education from East Texas Baptist University, graduating Magna Cum Laude. Before I moved to Alaska, I was the Middle School band director and the High School Assistant director at Clarksville ISD. After moving here I was the Music Specialist at Anchorage Montessori School. I resigned my position there to babysit my grandson. (I have one son and daughter in law, and one grandson.) I have held Worship Leader positions at Buchanan FBC and Lone Oak Baptist, as well as being the Music Assistant for Beech Street FBC.
I was saved on a church bus that would come to our neighborhood on Saturdays. They would show us a film about Jesus, and that day He made it clear to me that I was loved by Him and He would never leave me. So thankful for His provision and for giving that church the wisdom and resources for that bus ministry! I could say so much more about my testimony, but it would be a book!
Clear Water Church is doing some awesome work in the community, and I look forward to seeing lives changed because of that work! As Sound Tech, I have been excited to see the talented young people willing to step up and lead, or take part in leading, worship. I am excited to see what the future holds for them as they serve God with their talents!
