“It is my honor to serve this community by providing pastoral care through preaching, worship, leadership development, discipleship, visitation, counseling and administration.

My absolute passion is the cause of women in all aspects. After spending years trying to pretzel myself into Superwoman, I discovered a little secret; you can have it all! Career, marriage, babies, and a purposed Christ-Centered life, BUT you can’t have it all at once. So I believe God has called me to teach this concept and free some women up to be who are in this season of their life.

I was ordained a pastor in 2006. I sit on the Board of Directors of Role Models of America and Moms Against Hunger two organizations that really work within the mandate of the organization In 2006 I founded Transforming Life Center 4 Women. TLC4Women is an organization that tackles real-life issues that challenge the lives of women because life isn’t lived inside the walls of the church. My work for TLC4Women has been recognized and awarded by our city, our county, and the state of California. I am involved in our local community and am a member of our local chapter of Soroptimist International.
