Enjoys:
I love to travel and explore new places.  I enjoy hiking and spending as much time as possible in the mountains.  My favorite pastime at home is to read.  We are a very close family and love spending time together whether its hiking, going to movies, eating out, going to sports events or just staying home.

Fun Fact:
I am a former intelligence analyst and participated in the significant events in world history from 1989-2000.  I teach the art of deep analysis to my students and never let them settle for accepting things as they appear.  I love leading the search for deeper meaning in everything I teach.  I am a firm believer in the art of the story and use and teach storytelling as a means to convey significant information in all areas.

What I love about my position:
I have the privilege of proclaiming God’s truth everyday and in everyway to the next generation of leaders. I equip my students to proclaim, defend and live their faith!  I take my calling seriously to shepherd this next generation and help them “Believe, Belong, Become”

Bible Verse with special personal meaning:
Isaiah 40:31 “But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint”
