After graduating, I taught English as a second language online for 2 years. God has always led me to ministry with children and I have a genuine gift and heart for them. I have babysat, nannied, taught Sunday school, volunteered at local public schools, and more. I recently got engaged to my high school sweetheart on November 18th, 2019. We pray Covid ends soon so we can continue forward with our wedding plans. We have 2 cats and a husky that we spoil and love so much.
