“Believe it or not when I was younger I wanted to move to San Diego and be an orca trainer for Seaworld (doesn’t every kid?!) I loved the idea of being able to play in the sun and water all day with a gentle giant! But, God had other plans to use my gifts as a high school teacher and athletic trainer – pretty far cry from orcas & dolphins! When that training was over He called me home to be a mom. Then into the local church ministry to be a women’s pastor, then a speaking pastor and most recently, out of local church ministry and into the nonprofit world as an executive director. It’s amazing (and very curious) the hats God has asked me to wear in life. Some of those hats (roles) I never saw myself wearing. Yet, as I’ve allowed Him to guide and direct my life, God has moved me into a space where I want what He wants.  And apparently, God wants me at Life Services where I get to serve with the most amazing team on the planet, watch God use my own abortion-recovery story testify to His goodness, see Jesus transform the lives of our clients and then partner with donors, Gospel-centered churches and other local ministries to see a message that promotes LIFE flourish in Spokane! What better life could there be than this! Top that off with the two handsome, talented teen sons and knockout hubby I have at home and I’d say life is goooood!”
