Born and raised in Stillwater, Oklahoma, I grew up in a Christian household that was very involved in the
life of the church. My parents were Sunday school leaders and active volunteers. Basically, if there was
an event at the church we were there. When I was eight years old, I gave my life to Christ at a children’s
scripture memory program called AWANAs. I remember my leader talking about Jesus and how we
could have a personal relationship with Him. As I grew up, I began to fully understand the importance of
Christ’s sacrifice and the act of daily laying my life at the foot of the cross.
While in college, I volunteered with the youth group at Eagle Heights Baptist Church in Stillwater. I spent
three summers at Falls Creek working on the program staff and did a summer youth internship at
Second Baptist Church in Houston. God used each of these ministry opportunities to cultivate my
passion for ministry and working in the church.
I graduated in May 2014 from Oklahoma State University with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. In
hopes of furthering my education and the dream of becoming a counselor, I recently began coursework
for my Masters in Community Counseling at Southwestern Oklahoma State University.
Hope for my ministry:
My hope for Quail Springs Baptist Church is that we would never lose sight of the gospel. I pray that we
would not get caught up in the production of events, but that we would be mindful of the opportunities
we have to share Christ.
