I have always felt that God has given me the gift of service. I feel most comfortable when I am helping others. In the past, I have worked in healthcare which allowed me to fulfill that calling of serving others. Since having my two wonderful children, Savannah and Garland, I have been blessed to be able to stay home with them and devote my time fully to them while my husband, Alex, worked to pay the bills. I was excited, however, when the opportunity opened up to be able to serve as Administrative Assistant at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church. I look forward to being able to assist the church in this manner. My mother was a church secretary throughout most of my whole life and I have grown up helping her in many churches. I never knew then that God was working to equip me to do the same. I am excited and encouraged to be a part of the staff at a Pleasant Hill Baptist Church.
