She has always enjoyed making meals for others, and is excited to now be making meals for the wonderful students at EC!

Tell us about yourself
I grew up in a small town named Sulphur Bluff, TX. I moved to New Jersey in 2015 after marrying my husband. I enjoy spending time outdoors hiking, going to the beach, and maintaining my plants. I also enjoy singing and making up recipes.
Tell us the story of how God brought you to EC
I came to EC purely through the grace of God. I previously worked a variety of jobs; all of which I believe were preparing me to arrive at EC. I have previously had experience in food handling, accounting, school secretarial work, substitute work, and childcare. Through my many experiences, I really believe I had landed in my calling when I started working with children and young people. While working in public schools, I learned that even just a simple, “How are you? Are you okay?” could completely turn a student’s day around. I began praying for a career that would allow me to share the love of Jesus with today’s youth, and to prioritize being available for my daughter as well. Shortly after, I learned of an opening at EC; and knew I should apply. Now I am free to share God’s love with students and while doing something I love: cooking! Through EC, I have also been blessed with a schedule that allows me to invest more time into my daughter as well. I am so grateful.
What sets EC apart?
When you put God first, he will lead and guide your life in his will. EC does just that. I am so happy the students here are taught the word of God, and are taught to apply it to their lives. I know it will truly shape their lives and open doors for them that no one can shut.
