Staff and Board
I have been honored to work with Teen Lifeline since the beginning. First as Program Director and in the Spring of 2012 as the Executive Director. Working with teenagers is what I have felt called to for a long time. Since graduating Abilene Christian University in 2001 with a B.S. in Youth Ministry I have spent my time gaining experience and being trained to do just that. I began as a youth minister in North Richland Hills, TX while pursuing a Masters in Counseling from Dallas Baptist University which I completed in 2004. Over the years I have seen the need to help teenagers that are looking for direction or who need help making better choices. Thank you for your interest in what we are doing and feel free to contact me with any questions you have about how we can help you or someone you know.

I am honored to serve as the Program Director of Teen Lifeline and am excited to meet the needs of our teenagers. In 2001,I graduated from Midwestern State University with a degree in Kinesology and worked with varsity and middle school sports for two years. After this I was a youth minister in Vernon and Granbury, TX. During this time I earned my Masters Degree in Family LIfe Education from Lubbock Christian University in 2010 to better equip our work with teenagers and families. My career and educational opportunities have exposed me to teenagers from a variety of backgrounds. Simply put, I love teenagers and have a desire to help them make good choices while also giving their families tools to communicate more effectively as choices are made.
