I attended The College of William and Mary and graduated in 2007 with a B.A. in Russian Studies.  After graduation, I lived in Pyatigorsk, Russia for a year, working with the local United Methodist Church, volunteering at two orphanages and a boarding school for children with developmental delays, and studying at the local linguistic university.  In 2010, I finally recognized God’s call in my life to ordained pastoral ministry, and I began the process to become an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church.

I graduated from Wesley Theological Seminary in 2013, and at the 2013 Virginia United Methodist Church’s Annual Conference, I was commissioned as a provisional elder.  I was ordained an elder in 2016. During this time, I served for eight years as pastor at Page UMC.

I am excited and grateful to be the pastor at the Southern Albemarle Charge and serve both Scottsville UMC and Mount Zion UMC!

One of my favorite Bible verses is John 31:34-35, and this verse is central to my ministry. – “I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.’”

I live in Scottsville with my husband, J.R., and our two daughters.
