A life-long Christian, I took a long break from religious involvement only to be called again as a late bloomer! I recently completed seminary and was ordained in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in 2017. I love all people, animals and the outdoors engaging in horseback riding, kayaking, hiking as well as having a career in landscaping that keeps me outdoors. As a survivor of domestic violence, it only makes sense that God would call me to the ministry of helping other women who experience abuse. The nonprofit under way, Annie’s Hope Center for Growing and Healing will help any woman who is ready to be free from the trauma to heal, grow and find self-worth seeing themselves as God sees them; with love and divinity.
I am married to a wonderful companion who shares the care of our horses and dogs and grandchildren!
