My love for the performing arts started with me picking out songs on the piano by ear at age four. In grade school I was in every choir, band, musical, play, and speech group possible receiving many state level honors and scholarships. I attended Kirkwood Community College for Vocal Music Performance & Acting, and have loved putting those skills to use in ministry.
New Life has been my loving church home since September 2017. They are my family in Christ! I am the Community Outreach Coordinator and also actively serve helping teach and coordinate kids church.
