I grew up in Red Oak, Texas as one of the oldest of eight kids. I love time spent with friends, all things outdoors, traveling and have a great appreciation for a good cup of coffee!
I am a proud graduate of Dallas Baptist University (Go Pats!), having received my degree in Business Management and Entrepreneurship. College played a huge role in my life, not just in education but in my walk with the Lord. I grew up in a Christian home and came to know the Lord at a young age. But as I grew up, I began to find my worth in what the world called valuable – people’s opinions, sports, and achievements rather than God. After years of chasing the approval of man I finally came to the end of my self my freshman year of college and realized I was dead in my sin and in need of a relationship with Christ to be fully alive. From there, I began to let God’s word and love inform my heart, transform my life, and committed to living out Acts 20:24 “But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.” After graduating, I worked as a Design Consultant before joining the Students Team at Watermark where each day I get to have a front row seat to how God is working in the hearts and lives of students here at Watermark!
