I have the privilege of “working” (although it doesn’t feel like work) on the Young Adults team as the Digital Media Coordinator. How did I end up at Watermark? Simply by the Lord’s grace and kindness.
I grew up in Cocoa Beach, Florida living the beach life and went to college at the University of Central Florida. After graduating, I continued chasing things of this world in hopes of fulfilling my pursuit of happiness. Success, relationships, career - I got all of the things I thought would satisfy me and it never felt like it was enough. God used that season of life to show me the empire I was trying to build for myself was like a mere sandcastle, and Jesus is the rock I can confidently put my hope in.
One day, a friend of mine sent me a Porch podcast and as I listened, I realized following Christ wasn’t something you do only on Sundays, but it should inform every decision you make. I listened to countless more Porch podcasts, and on a random trip to Dallas, finally had the opportunity to attend The Porch live. At The Porch, someone told me about the Watermark Residency Program. The very next day, I applied, was accepted, and moved to Dallas a few months later - #RezLyfe16! I now get to serve on staff and use my marketing background and heart for young adults to reach people through digital media.I love my family, and out of everything in Florida, I miss them and the beach the most. I have three sisters that I love dearly – my identical twin Christen (who has since made the move to Dallas as well!), and younger sisters Jamie and Hannah. If I’m not at Watermark, you can find me playing outside - paddle boarding at White Rock Lake, finding a trail to hike, or chilling in a hammock listening to podcasts, music, or reading a good book.
