Preschool & Children Director
I have been married to Doug for 20 years, and we have 3 beautiful children, Isabel, Emily and Colby.
I grew up in the middle Tennessee area where I received my BA in English at Cumberland University and my MA in 19th Century Literature from MTSU. I worked at Lifeway and as a mom before joining the staff at Immanuel as the Children and Preschool Director. I have been serving with children at IBC for 13 years. I attended church as a child but it wasn’t until I was a young adult that I truly understood that my relationship with Jesus needed to be something personal. Since that time my passion has been to make every child feel loved and accepted, and to nurture them so that one day they will make the choice to follow Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
In my spare time, I enjoy cheering for my kids at their sporting events, traveling (especially to Disney World and New York), and running. I also love Kay Arthur’s Precepts Bible Studies..
“The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?”
