I have over eight years of teaching experience in biblical studies and leadership studies and have been nominated multiple times for excellence in teaching awards. I have also completed the Teaching Certificate in Higher Education from Baylor University. I was ordained as a minister to a primarily academic teaching ministry by a fellowship of Baptists on October 29, 2016.

I was born and raised in North Georgia and lived in Atlanta, GA, for some time.  My husband Glynn and I have been married for almost nineteen years and we have two cats named Sophie and George. I'm a rabid fan of the Atlanta Braves and Atlanta Falcons (yes, I know....) for over thirty years.  I’m also a fan of the Houston Texans, Baylor Bear football and Lady Bear basketball, and of course the UMHB Cru.   I’m a total nerd—I love Settlers of Catan, Big Bang Theory, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Parks and Recreation, and reading fiction books.
