Born in Shelby, NC and raised on Kauai, HI, my most cherished years were growing up in church as a pastor’s kid. I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Mass Communication from UNC Asheville in 2009. I have always had a passion for people and I strive to create a positive, welcoming environment wherever I am. I enjoy establishing and maintaining strong relationships to the community and am thrilled to be another smiling face at St. James. I look forward to serving the church by using my skills and experience to facilitate an open, loving community for all! Since moving to Hendersonville in 2014, I have loved hiking our many magnificent peaks, camping in gorgeous wildernesses, attending many Minor League Baseball games and spending time with my family and my cat.
