Minister to Women
It is a dream come true for me to serve as the Minister to Women here at Northwest Bible Church. I was born and raised in Buffalo, NY, where I worked as a Registered Nurse in various capacities for many years. My longest and favorite stint was in Labor and Delivery. As I served my church as a volunteer in Women’s Ministry, I felt God’s call to pursue further Biblical education. I moved to Dallas in 2016 to attend Dallas Theological Seminary and began attending Northwest shortly thereafter.
I was raised in a Christian home and accepted Christ as my Savior at 6 years old. As I grew physically, so did my faith. I loved Jesus and sought to share the love he had shown me to my family, friends, coworkers, and patients. At church I served in children’s, youth, and women’s ministry. But at thirty years old, I hit a crossroads in my faith. My life looked nothing like I planned, my health failed, and some Christians hurt me deeply. I felt like God turned his back on me. Yet as I stewed in my anger, Jesus gently showed me the truth of who he is: Good, Loving, Gracious, and Merciful. My lament gave way to awe and deep love for the God of Grace. He used this time to show me my desperate need for his grace and strength every single day.
I love to eat and travel, in that order. Mountains, oceans, lakes, cities, missions trips—I love exploring all God made. But a good travel experience better involve excellent food! God knew I needed Tex-Mex in my life when he moved me to Texas, and I can eat it for every meal. I like discovering new restaurants in Dallas, preferably over belly-laughs and deep conversation with good friends.
