Financial Coordinator

I started life in Savannah, Georgia, while my dad was in the Air Force there, but I grew up in East Texas. I was “raised in the church” and have worked “in the ministry” for most of my adult life. My husband and best friend of 43 years, Steven, and I have two wonderful children and two sweet grandchildren who live
in Wichita, Kansas. In 2011, the Lord moved us from Kansas to Tyler where I began working for Bethel Bible Church. We attend the Whitehouse Campus, and I love knitting, hanging out with Steve, and “crunching numbers”! Really!

I am proud to be a “Native East Texan” which is quite evident if you have ever heard me speak!! I came to Bethel as an Administrative Assistant in February 2000 and was immediately taken in by the Bethel Family. The 21 years I have been here have been amazing and I am so thankful for my Bethel family!!  I have two daughters, Karen & Susan, and three grandchildren who all live in Bullard. I cherish every minute of being “Nana” to Claire (a freshman at A&M) and Logan and Mark who are sophomores at Bullard High School!

I was born and raised in East Texas, and I love living here! I met my husband in 2008 on a mission trip to Nigeria but didn’t get married until 2014. We have three beautiful children. I spent five years in the classroom teaching English and History but have recently taken on the full-time job of momma at home. Nathanael and I came to Bethel in 2016 with the hope to establish roots among a community of believers that we could run alongside. I enjoy spending time on the beach, singing, reading, skiing in the mountains, and being gathered around a table full of good food with family.
