I started as the Children’s Elementary Director in Oct 2009. I’ve attended GVBC since I was 5. Following 15 years of teaching Sunday School, working 9 years as a paralegal and 10 years as a social worker, God called me to my new position. Children are my passion, and I want the children’s ministry to remain current, inspiring, as well as fun. It’s so important that the children know how much God loves them and wants a personal relationship. I look forward to partnering with parents and providing support in the spiritual development of their children.

I’m a UCLA Bruin and I support my team. My husband, Layne, and I enjoy watching rowdy Anaheim Ducks hockey on TV but being there is even better. We also like to play at Disneyland.
