Assistant to Administration, Connection, and Care


I was born in Wilmington and raised in nearby Duplin County. I am proud and happy to join the FBC family as Assistant to Administration, Connection, and Care. I live with my twin sister Abby and youngest daughter Adeline in Wallace. We have three dogs and too many cats. My two grown children, Seth and Kirsten, live in Missouri. Seth made me a grandma in 2018 with Ryder James and my second grandchild is due in January 2022.

Education: Peace College in Raleigh, now called William Peace University. BA in Communications

A scripture that is meaningful to me: James 1.2-6. The church service I attended that ultimately convinced me to give my heart to Jesus was based on these verses.  Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.

My favorite restaurants in Wilmington are… Copper Penny for two reasons: the onion rings are so large, they double as bracelets, and the wonderful memories with friends through the years. Port City Java on Front Street for the atmosphere and delicious local flavor. Henry’s for the meatloaf and mac and cheese. I once loved Elijah’s and Oceanic, but can no longer eat seafood.

My favorite vacation spot… My favorite vacation spots I’ve been to are Maggie Valley in the NC mountains, New York City, and England. I’m one of those rare people who actually loved the food in England. My bucket list locations are Scotland, New Zealand, Italy, and Ireland.
