I was born and raised in the Vista/Oceanside area of San Diego; the same area Pastor John served as a youth pastor, though I didn’t meet him until attending Crossroads. My family and I have been in Parker since 2009 when the Marine Corps transferred my husband to Buckley to serve the final 18 months of his 20 year career. The original plan was to move back home right after retirement but God had other things in mind. I received my B.A. in Business from Vanguard University of Southern California, in Costa Mesa in 2001, hoping to go into the world of financial planning. But here I am, blessed to be working at a church for the third time and I can’t imagine doing anything else. I’ve been married to my best friend since 1996 and we have two beautiful school aged children who keep us on our toes.
