I was born in Ruidoso, New Mexico. It is known for its’ infamous Ruidoso Downs (elite horse racing). My birthday is July 3rd. I almost hit the Independence Day. Eventually, I graduated from Tularosa High School in a small poverish Spanish village, where I graduated with 51 of my peers in 1992. Yes, it was teeny tiny! It was always a celebration to live in Tularosa.
I earned my Associate of Arts from Cleveland Community College in 2008 & Bachelors of Science from Grand Canyon University in 2013. I have been married 25 wonderful years to my husband Shane and have 5 children: Isaiah (23), Sydney (21 deceased), Samara (19), Nic (15), & Izzy (10). My family and I live in Kings Mountain NC.
In the past 25 years, I have worked in Kings Mountain Middle & High School (15 years), Heritage Christian Academy (1 year) & Victory Christian Academy (4 years), HH Beam (2 years). My husband and I have worked in Christian Ministry as Youth & Children Pastors (25 years).
My passion comes from serving all children, teen, or young adult to meet their potential. I also, love to sing ANYTHING, as long as I can understand the lyrics LOL and I am on the Worship Team of my church, destiny Church, Gastonia, NC! My favorite color is PURPLE & my favorite number is 4!
