Born and raised in West Los Angeles I moved to Arizona in 1992 with my husband, Gary and 2 daughters, Samantha and Cameron. In 2001 we all traveled to China to adopt daughter number 3, appropriately named Faith. Now we all live happily with our 4 dogs in the beautiful community of Ahwatukee Arizona.
My work experience includes accounting and supply chain management including 5 years at UCLA and the last 11 years with Matrixx Initiatives Inc. While I loved the excitement and challenges of the corporate world God had a different plan for my life. I was called out of the corporate world and into the ministry of missions and a new company called Student Matters.
I am a member of Foothills Baptist Church where I serve in several ministries including, “Living Water”, a high school choir / mission group, in our student ministry as a high school leader, and as a modern day Levite in our Celebration Adult Choir. God has spoken to me through these ministries calling me to use my organizational skills and spiritual gifts to help students get out in to the missions field.
My passion is for Jesus and watching people get turned on to serving Him! It is a joy to see students and adults flex their spiritual muscles and serve Christ in mission work. I love to see the power of God displayed in teens and adults that are willing to reach a dying world for our Lord and Savior, Jesus. I am always blessed when hearing how God personally met with a group while they were on mission trip or choir tour; how God touched the group as well as those they served. May God be glorified in all that Student Matters does!
