I was born in Beaver County PA and lived in the town of Beaver most of my life.  I went to Beaver High School of which I graduated from there.  I was a single mom until my son was 16 so I worked many types of jobs during this time.  In 2003, I went to Community College of Beaver County to become a Registered Nurse.  I graduated with my Associate's Degree as an RN in 2006.  I worked for 11 years as a RN and my PA RN license is still active to work.  I went to Grand Canyon University via online and received my Bachelor's Degree in Christian Studies in 2019.  I have finished my Course of Study which is required by the UMC in April of 2022.  I am currently going to United Theological Seminary for Advanced COS and I will receive my Master's of Arts in 2024.
I am now in my second appointment with UMC.  I was at the Thorn Creek Charge for 7 1/2 in Butler PA and now I am serving Eastbrook Charge in Volant PA. The services in this second charge would be called a blended service with anywhere from 30-65 people who attend. 
Personal interests are not fully known yet.  I do enjoy walking, reading other types of books besides classroom books, and spending time with family and friends.   I have one son who is a correction officer at the Beaver County jail and one granddaughter who is at the performing Arts School in Beaver County.  Her forte is in writing and her hope is someday to be a screenwriter.
