I grew up in Fort Worth in a Christian home. I’m the middle of five kids, and we were all involved in church activities, sports and music. As you can probably guess our house was usually loud. I studied instrumental music at SFA and taught elementary music for six years. I took a two year break in the middle and worked as a house parent in a foster group home for teenagers.
I came to Watermark in 2011 after being invited to the Porch by a coworker. It was on a Tuesday night that I realized I had been calling myself a Christian all my life but not really living in a way that others could see Jesus in me. I spent all my energy trying to find my value and worth in what other people thought of me and how good I was instead of finding my identity in Christ. My life radically changed when I chose to live for Christ instead of myself! I decided to join Watermark, find a community group and start serving in K1 Race. I had no idea that three years later God would allow me the privilege of working with this amazing group of kids in the role of K1 Race Coordinator!
In my free time I like to cook new foods and bake healthy desserts. You might also find me playing with my dog Sofi, working out and hanging out with my friends and family.
