I’m a graduate of of New Smyrna Beach High School & have some college education. I have always done some type of work in the Medical Field. I worked for 15 yrs at Bert Fish Medical Hospital as a Billing Clerk and Accounts Payable Clerk; 1 yr. at Halifax Hospital as a case manager; and 15 yrs at the Health department as a Financial Counselor, Medical Records Custodian and Supervisor
During my years of secular employment I saw the consequences of bad behavior or poor choices. My husband and I began working with teens since about the time we were married. We either led youth groups or served as youth leaders. Over the last 15 yrs or so I really started developing a heart for the teen girls, teaching small teens, especially on the choices we make. I knew I was nearing a retirement for years of service in my current job and began praying about where God would lead me., and especially in a field where I could use the passions He had already given me. So after my retirement for years of service I volunteered at a pregnancy center & when Grace House East was forming, I was hired as the Center (Client Services)Director.
God has really blessed me. I have grown spiritually & become bolder in my faith. I know that I am doing exactly what God has called me to do. I see God’s hand at work in so many ways: in the lives of the young women & men that put their trust in Christ, in answered prayer, & in provisions for the ministry. What a Blessing!!
