Meet the Team
Understanding I am nothing without my Creator and having the opportunity to be a data geek, mom, daughter, friend, sister, and volunteer I ‘get to’ serve my community. My journey started on a cold night in Dec trying to live God’s word by sharing a blanket and I was the one given a gift… the gift to see others in need. I feel blessed to live in Blount County and I am passionate about leveraging the grace and love I receive to serve others.
A believer in the love and teaching of our savior Jesus Christ. A desire to reach out in love and compassion for those of us in distress and less fortunate. My immediate goal as a board member is To contribute to the growth and success of providing shelter for the homeless of Blount County and surrounding areas.
I am the former director of the Chilhowee Baptist Center. I served Blount County's less fortunate families as well as our homeless population for over 12 years. Prior to this, I served as coordinator for Southern Baptist Disaster Relief in Blount County. I am a retired veteran with 32 years of service as a communication specialist. I live in Walland with my wife, Sue, and 2 young daughters. I also have 2 grown children.
