Growing up mainly on the West Coast (except for a few years in the midwest) I never imagined I would call the East Coast or Virginia home but the Navy had other plans for our family. I married my husband, Tyler, in 2000 and his job sent us from one coast to the other and after 21 years his military service came to an end and Virginia is where we and our 4 children now call home and we love it! Our family found RL in the Summer of 2015. We love the people and being part of a church that is passionate about the person of Jesus and the transforming power of the Holy Spirit.
I accepted the role of Women’s Ministry leader in the Spring of 2016. I love encouraging women to build relationships with not only one another but, more importantly with Jesus, to know Him personally and to be comfortable in His Word. In 2019 I accepted the staff position of Marriage and Women’s Ministry Director. My desire is to see the marriages at RL thrive and be living examples of the Gospel message through the avenues of couple mentorships, small groups, and marriage events. God saved my marriage many years ago and I love telling our story and pointing others to the One who can heal and redeem whatever we bring to Him.
In the Summer there is no other place I would rather be than at the beach with my family. However, in the Winter, my favorite place is at home with my husband and kids curled up on the couch watching a movie. I love to exercise, listen to podcasts, dance like nobody’s watching, collect journals, and like any normal person, I love love love coffee and coffee mugs!
