About Me

I grew up in Talladega, Alabama (Yes, like Talladega Nights). After graduating high school I attended Berea College in Kentucky, where I played basketball for three years, and received a BA in Physical Education. In 2012, I went on a Summer Project with CRU (campus crusades college ministry) where I lived in Gatlinburg, TN for the summer. It was there, that I felt called into ministry. God affirmed my gifts in worship, and I began leading in a local church when I returned back to Berea for my senior year.

After graduating college, I moved home to Alabama and attended Church of the Highlands ministry school, Highlands College in Birmingham. There, I was able to develop my gifts, as well as be discipled by incredible leaders. There, I fell in love with the local church, and grew an even deeper passion for leading people into God's presence through worship. After graduating Highlands College, I moved to Knoxville to intern with Faith Promise. It felt like home right away. I am so excited to join this team and continue to see God's hand on Faith Promise Church, and to see East Tennessee come to know Christ, and find freedom!

One more thing, I'm a HUGE Auburn fan. WAR EAGLE!
