I was born in Eloy, Arizona. As the daughter of a Methodist minister,  I grew up moving from church to church in California, Nevada, and Arizona.  I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University in May of 2002.   I have taught third, fourth, and fifth grades in North Las Vegas and Arizona.  I married my wonderful husband, Jeremiah, in 2009 and have been teaching kindergarten at a charter school for the last two years.  We welcomed our first son, Lucas James, in October of 2010 and our first daughter, Amelia Rose, in May of 2012.  I am thrilled to be the Children’s Ministry Coordinator for Green Valley UMC for so many reasons.  I love to teach children about Jesus and the difference He makes in all of our lives and I love to learn the simple truths that only children can teach us.  I also love working with the incredible staff and volunteers of this church.  I am looking forward to what God has planned for this ministry.
