Administrative Support to Pastoral Care

I was born and raised in West Virginia and have a twin sister and 2 other sisters.

I attended West Virginia University for 2 years and was studying to be a Social Worker. I married in 1963 and have been blessed with 3 children, Tammy, Terri, Todd and 3 grandchildren.

I was active in the Methodist church while growing up but didn’t really know the Lord on a personal basis until 1972 while living in Grand Rapids Michigan.

I moved to Atlanta in 1976 and began seeking a closer relationship to the Lord. I continually try to live my life daily to serve him and be a blessing to others.

When I began working at North in 1993, I was so excited because I had always wanted to work in a Christian Ministry and the Lord had given me the desire of my heart. I have had the privilege of working in the Missions and Discipleship Department and now serve in the Pastoral Care Department. I love my job and look forward to coming to work each day.

The Bible


My eyes are two different colors.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.
