    I received a degree (ok - 2 degrees) in engineering from Tennessee Tech University but later on felt God calling me to ministry and it has been an interesting and beautiful journey! I then became a student at Pfeiffer University and received an M.A. in Christian Education. I work full time at a residential home for children, Thompson, where I serve as the Spiritual Care and Expressive Arts Manager. I have a 15 year old son, Clai, and 2 dogs (Speckles and Lil).
