I was born and raised in Texas and accepted Christ at a very young age in Sunday School. I graduated from the University of North Texas with a teaching degree and taught elementary school for about 10 years. My husband Jace and I were married in 1991 and we have three amazing children, one of which is already with our Lord in paradise.

We moved to Ankeny in 2010, and soon after, joined First Family Church. I was the Youth Administrative Assistant from 2014 to 2019, and I am currently serving as the Discipleship Ministry Assistant. I feel privileged to work and serve with such an amazing group of people!
