She answered a call to step into ministry leading the youth and became the director of family services for Chalmers Community Church.  She is a social person who loves being in fellowship with her brothers and sisters in Christ of any age!  Her desire is to grow in her faith, allow Christ to rule her life and to be able to encourage others to do the same.
