Joined the Team:
August 2013

Training Ground:
My previous employer, SVI, a powerhouse training and development firm, really challenged and amped my writing skills and creativity.  While at SVI, I had the opportunity to work as part of the team to refine the first Workmatters Study on the Book of Nehemiah for its marketplace release. Before moving to Arkansas, I worked for the National Association of Mothers’ Centers, a nonprofit that provides resources for mothers and families, and Legend Development Services where I provided sales training and coaching. Prior to that, I worked for several organizations engaged in developing and teaching technology solutions.

I love the outdoors, music and art, dancing and visiting with close friends sharing a slice of life together.

My first hero is Jesus, because He is my one and only savior, He has rescued me and loves me with a love that is bigger than I can contain. And it is thanks to my mother, Rochelle, that I know Jesus and have faith in Him. She has always been there for me through many challenging times. I know that her prayers have been powerful and she shares the love of Christ with me without fail. I am very grateful for her.

Best Advice Received:
Let go and let God.

Listen to:
I love Contemporary Christian music. I also love jazz, classical (the kind that is a bit more upbeat and artistic), new age and pop. I love music. Aside from music, I also love listening to excellent Christian teachers including Joyce Meyer, Andy Stanley and Michael Hyatt, to name just a few.

Dream Destination:
Australia. I love the ocean and would love to visit the Great Barrier Reef and swim with dolphins. I also have had a lifelong desire to visit Egypt.

Most People Don’t Know this About Me:
I LOVE the cello and played for many years. I dream of owning a cello again so I can pick it up and play now and then.
