What year did you join MBCA? 
A: 2022

What do you love about MBCA? 
A: The truly Christ-centered education, commitment to both quality education and spiritual growth. The unity modeled by the leadership team. The commitment to continuous improvement. The focus on cultivating community and family. 

What is your all-time favorite sports team? 
A: Is it horrible to say the Yankees? I am working on falling in love with the Braves and hope to get a jersey soon! 

What is your favorite Bible verse, and why? 
A: Proverbs 3:5-6 - My grandma wrote this verse on every birthday, Christmas, and anniversary card. She modeled what it was to faithfully trust in the Lord and acknowledge Him in every way. I want this to be my legacy too. 

What are three fun facts about yourself?
A: I love adventure sports like ocean kayaking, high-altitude hiking, and horseback riding. Still on my bucket list is scuba diving, skydiving, and biking the Virginia creeper trail. 
I love family! I am the oldest of seven children. I am a proud aunt to 25 nieces and nephews (one still on the way) whom I love to pieces! 
It gives me great joy to serve - hauling boxes on the big moving day, giving a new room life with a fresh coat of paint, clearing that garden that you just can't get to - I do it for the connection and the opportunity to be helpful. 

What is your favorite book? 
A: The Shubert Book series by Dr. Becky Bailey.
