I grew up with my parents and sister in Smyrna, GA. My dad was a Church of God minister, and he and my mom pastored a church in Winston, GA. When I was 12, my dad felt led to resign the church and take our family to Mount Paran Church of God in Atlanta. God had a plan as this is where I met my husband, Ricky.
I started working at Mount Paran North in February of 1994 as the church receptionist. I then became the Senior Pastor’s administrative assistant. In August 2017, Dr. Kirk Walters was appointed Senior Pastor at Mount Paran North and I became his executive assistant.
God has richly blessed Ricky and me over the years. We have two wonderful children, Chad and Carleigh, a lovely daughter-in-law, Ana, and a remarkable son-in-law, Mike. We have eight precious grandchildren, Peyton, Carl, Katy, Michael, Julia, Lucy, Asher and Jolene. And as a bonus, I have the most amazing German Shorthaired Pointer, Callie. I cannot thank God enough!
