About My Family

I am a child of The King. I am wife to a God-loving and serving husband named Travis, whom I adore. I am a daughter, sister, mother and grandmother.

Travis and I are lifelong residents of Crossville, Tenn., and have been married 13 years. We have a blended family of three sons and one daughter. Our oldest is 24, married and have their first child, our first grand-baby. Our next is 23, and the youngest are 22 and pursuing their own degrees.

As “empty nesters,” and apart from full-time ministry, we love spending time with family, kayaking, hiking, landscaping and sports.

About My Ministry

I serve as chaplain for the Southern Baptist Convention Disaster Relief team. Also, I am in full-time ministry at Fairfield Glade First Baptist Church. I serve as ministry associate of music and chaplaincy.

I provide pastoral care and counseling for our members while also serving as one of the chaplains for our local hospital. I am fortunate to have been allowed to continue serving all clinical and management staff from the beginnings of and through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Having obtained a B.S. in Religion and an M.A. in Pastoral Counseling and Community Chaplaincy from Liberty University, I feel the Lord leading me toward a career in full-time health care chaplaincy and pastoral care. I am looking forward to what God has in store. My hope is to continually grow in these roles as I seek to serve wherever God leads.

SBC Chaplaincy
