I was born and raised around the Detroit area. Thankfully, my mother took me to Sunday School each week, where I was able to hear the gospel clearly explained by my teacher. I was about ten years old when I experienced the conviction of the Holy Spirit for my sin and asked for forgiveness, trusting Christ alone for my salvation.
I received my BSN and license to practice as a registered nurse in 1986. The first twenty years of my nursing experience was in critical care, emergency department, and pre-hospital care through flight programs in Atlanta and Colorado Springs. In 2006, while listening to a missionary to Nigeria, I realized that I could volunteer to be a missionary.
I prepared to serve in West Africa, but my host country entered into civil war, and the medical ministry was no longer active. I learned about Medical Missions Outreach through an internet search, and after doing several trips with MMO, I officially transferred to serve alongside Bradley and Kelly in early 2013.
My roles within the ministry have evolved as new staff have joined the ministry at home, and on the field I remain fluid with the needs as they present themselves throughout the clinic day.
Fun Facts About Me
My favorite trip location is anywhere where our host church family invests as much in winning their countrymen to Christ as have our team members.
A piece of advice that has had the most profound effect on ministry is that we can’t all be the last link in the chain. And also, be a good steward of the talents and abilities God has given you.
If I could invent a holiday, it would definitely involve ice cream.
Some advice I would give a volunteer team member who wants to join one of our trips would be don’t make excuses why you can’t go. Let the Lord use you.
Cats or dogs? Dogs... angels. Cats... well...
If I could snap my fingers and become an expert in something it would be carpentry.
To me the most inspiring part of my job is meeting my brothers and sisters in Christ around the world. I love missionaries who have faithfully served in their host country, and because of their service I now have this family of ‘all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues’ who will someday stand with me before the throne and before the Lamb.
The most important thing I learned before high school was be careful of my friends.
