I am an ordained Baptist minister who moved from the mid-Atlantic to Lakeland in the summer of 2010. It has been my joy and privilege to have the opportunity to serve at All Saints' Church since August 2013, first as the Children and Youth Music Director and now as the Director of Family Ministries. My husband and I are the parents of a young adult, and I am an Aspirant to the Ordination of the Priesthood in the Diocese of Central Florida.
