I grew up mostly in East Tennessee at the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains, which is where I fell in love with being outdoors enjoying God’s creation. I was also fortunate enough to grow up in a home where my parents lived out their faith and I knew that I was loved unconditionally. So I was drawn to ministry as a young teenager. In high school I got involved with Young Life and then became a volunteer leader in college and post college for 9 years before eventually working for them for 20 years. We met Matt and Becca in 2009 when we moved just down the street from them and have been big fans of Still Water ever since. Both our children have been impacted by the ministry as campers and champ camp leaders over the years. So I am really excited for this new adventure as the Hill Country Director for Still Water!
