Mission and Focus

I have over twenty years of business experience from the airlines, to the tech industry, to non-profit organizations. I have been on staff serving Cornerstone Church in Auburn since 2008 as the Business Administrator and Production Manager. With an BA in Accounting from UAB, and an MA in Theology from Liberty University, I hope to be able to equip others in fulfilling their mission goals and objectives.

I find great value in the relational aspect of life, and in being able to help others using the skills and experience I have acquired. I have been fortunate to be able to serve locally in the Auburn-Opelika area, internationally in places like Uganda, Africa, as well as online communities where I spent two years with YouVersion.com as a volunteer support representative.
