About Me

God has called me to serve in the Discovery Center to reach children.  He sees each one as precious, valuable and capable of success.  I love building relationships with the students and their families. At church, I like to serve by singing on the praise team, by being a Crossroads team leader, and by writing letters to prisoners.  I am married to Duane, who is a CPA.  We have three children, and when I’m at home, I can be found cheering them on in their activities, enjoying God’s creation, or reading a great book.
