After College, I went to Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, and graduated with my M.Div. While in Seminary, I interned in Summerville, South Carolina for a year, attended the US Army Chaplain School for Officer Basic, and did my Clinical Pastoral Education at Brooke Army Medical Center, Ft. Sam Houston, TX. I went to seminary with several of the ministers in this presbytery, but we are all sworn to secrecy. My mother followed me to seminary. After she retired, she too attended Austin Seminary, earned her M.Div. and served a rural congregation in Oakland, Oregon for 7 years.
Once I graduated from Seminary, I accepted a position as the Director of Church Growth and Older Adult Ministries in Bryan, TX, for a couple of years before being ordained. I then served congregations in Crockett, TX, Houston, TX, King of Prussia, PA, Yellville, AR, and currently serve in Searcy, AR. I became the Stated Clerk on October 1, 2022.
