I am overjoyed to be serving at Sardis/Reeves Chapel United Methodist Churches as my first appointment as Licensed Local Pastor.  I am a lifelong Methodist.  I was raised in a variety of parsonages throughout Western North Carolina. My father was serving in Leicester (Grace, Dix Creek, Leicester)  when I was born.

I found my way back to Asheville in 2000.

My husband, Mark and I have one son.  He and his wife and their daughter live in Leicester.

The path my life has taken over the last 5 years has had some unexpected twists.  Unexpected to me but surely forseen by God.  I am thankful for a patient and loving God who does not give up on me but continues to offer mercy and grace.

I look forward to the next twist in the path and I look forward to travelling with each of you.

The grace and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
