What a joy and privilege it has been to be a part of FBCSB as an Administrative Assistant for almost six years now.

I moved to Clarksville, TN over nine years ago from California. I was raised to love God and went to many different churches growing up, but at the age of 19, I realized that I wanted a personal relationship with God, I wanted to know Him, not just know about Him. I started attending Sunday School at Columbus Street Baptist Church in Bakersfield, CA where I gave my life to Christ. My passion for God has led me to enjoy praying and being in His Word daily, in both good times and in difficult times. One of my favorite addresses in the Bible is Lamentations 3:22-24. I am so grateful for the promises of a loving, merciful, and gracious God.

I have been married to my best friend and the love of my life Paul for 28 years. I have three children, one beautiful grandchild, and another one on the way! I have strived to raise my children to know Jesus Christ (3 John 4 – I have no greater joy than this, to hear of my children walking in the truth). One of my greatest joys is watching them navigate life and praying for them.

I have worked in finance for the last 8 years, prior to that, I held my CSR license in California for court reporting, I proofread transcripts, and was a stay-at-home mom. Having originated from California and being new to the South, my hobbies include traveling to new places in the South, cooking, playing games with family and friends, eating good chocolate (if this counts as a hobby), reading, and watching old movies.
