This move to Charlotte has been my 17th move and I have been blessed with many wonderful experiences and friends. Wayne and I met in the Midwest and were married in 2009 followed by moving to Charlotte, NC. A native of California, I met my late-husband Tim in Massachusetts. Together we had 2 wonderful girls, and lived in IL, MA and overseas for 6 years split between in Okinawa, Japan and Palau. There Tim worked as a physician and I organized and lead small group bible studies. My MDiv and MATS are from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, Massachusetts and I am ordained with the United Church of Christ. My two most wonderful ministry experiences were teaching high school bible classes in Palua and being a hospice chaplain in Michigan & Washington.
