"I left a secular position in October 2016, pursuing a call into full-time ministry after serving in the post secondary education field for over 35 years, 14 years as a Director of Admissions. God has called me to pastor. Palmer Theological Seminary has equipped me with the education and tools necessary for effectively pastoring in and growing the Kingdom of God. I bring my 35 years of education experience to the position of Vice Moderator - I am committed to help build, strengthen, encourage, and motivate every student God places before me."
