Ministry Role & Responsibility: Getting to be a part of Children’s Ministry at Brook Hills is a privilege that I am so excited and thankful to have! In my role, I support the vision of Brook Hills Kids by faithfully and wholeheartedly supporting this ministry and the staff. I participate in planning, communicating, and providing support for Sunday and Wednesday nights, as well as special events throughout the year.
About Me: I grew up here in Birmingham, Alabama and attended The University of Alabama for my undergraduate and graduate degrees. I have an accounting background but have volunteered in children’s ministry for many years. Phyliss Wright was my children’s director growing up, and I have worked alongside her as a volunteer for as long as I can remember. (I used to tell people I wanted to be her when I grew up!) I have been confident that the Lord would call me into a full-time children’s ministry position, and I am so glad that He did. He has exceeded what I could have ever imagined by bringing me to Brook Hills and into a position where I get to directly learn from one of my mentors.
In March of 2016, I married my husband, Jake. We moved to Denver, Colorado for a little while, until we felt the Lord calling us to Brook Hills. On the weekends, you will find me exploring the outdoors, playing with my goldendoodle, Lucy, trying new restaurants with friends, or attempting to convince Jake to take me to Disney World.

"Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name, I will lift up my hands. I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you." – Psalm 63:3-5
Interesting Fact: My family owns 200 whites doves that we release at weddings and funerals. Then they fly back to our house!
