Refugee Ministry Director
I am honored to serve as the Refugee Ministry Director at Northwest Bible Church. I graduated from Oklahoma State University with a Bachelor’s in Psychology, and from the University of Texas at Arlington with a Master’s in Social Work. I currently hold a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) license with the state of Texas. Prior to Northwest, I worked for 3 years at a non-profit in South Dallas managing a federal grant as well as external non-profit partnerships, and for 4 years with Cru’s (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) humanitarian aid arm Global Aid Network (GAiN) working with internally displaced persons and refugees. God truly orchestrated my life, as my previous work weaves succinctly into my role at Northwest. I’m thrilled to be serving with an awesome team in Vickery!
My two words for my vision frame are advocating the hidden. I really see the calling on my life to help others see value in the unseen. I see the possibilities and potential in others. I truly believe that everyone (and I mean everyone!) has intrinsic value, as they were created in God’s image. My experiences, education, and passions reflect how much I believe that. I want to advocate and champion that value to empower others.
My best days are spent laughing with my husband, Adam. I love humor and laughter, and truly found someone that keeps me endlessly entertained. We love rooting for Virginia Tech and Oklahoma State football on Saturdays in the fall, and walking our rescue dog Maggie. I enjoy a well-placed pun and a great meal spent lingering over conversation with good company. I love having friends and family in our home, traveling, antique hunting, reading, learning new things, listening to music, and trying new restaurants in Dallas.
