I was born and raised in east Texas, in Sulphur Springs. I was raised by my amazing mother who fears and loves God above all else. She raised me and my 2 older sisters by herself and always credited the Lord as the one who pulled us forward. Although I was raised in the church and even served in many capacities, I never knew the Lord.
I moved to Dallas in 2013 to begin my studies at Dallas Baptist University. I finally met and gave my life over to the Lord in 2019. I graduated with my Masters in Communications and was excited to move forward in the corporate world. With my degree in communications and marketing, and my work history in finance I expected corporate in my future. However, the Lord had much better and bigger plans.
Flash forward to today where I serve as the Executive Assistant to Operations and Missions at Fielder Church. The doors that were opened and the relationships that have developed I can only accredit to the Lord and his kindness and gentle will for my life. I am passionate about media and really enjoy making order out of chaos (which can at times feel like the definition of my work).
I love the vision of Fielder and the call to diversity (which as a woman and a person of color was difficult to find), the ministry of Foster Care and Adoption (since I also grew up fatherless), the emphasis of community and discipleship (which has strengthened and sharpened me in ways that would not be possible in isolation), and the call to align your dreams and desires of your heart with the Lord and be sent (which has proven to be more worthwhile than anything I could imagine for myself).
I hope to see you at one of the campuses or at an event! Join our online services and listen to our podcast if you aren’t close. We all need the Lord and the community He graciously offers.
