Describe yourself in three words
Faith-filled. Family. Focused.
What motivates you in your work?
We change peoples’ lives. We make their part of the world a little better by cleaning up the blight next door. It’s not just a physical change, but there’s an emotional one as well.
What is the best advice you ever received?
Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your path straight.”
What is one thing that people would be surprised to know about you?
I belong to a healing prayer ministry. Jesus heals, and I get to see that every time we pray with someone.
What’s playing in your car right now and what show is #1 on your DVR?
Right now, I’m stuck on Keri Jobe’s new album “The Garden,” but I always have a Hillsong United disc in my car. I don’t watch TV.
What do you do for fun/hobbies?
I’m a church lady at heart and I love spending time with my family.
What drew you to work at the Cuyahoga Land Bank?
I was looking for a new employment opportunity and was encouraged to apply for the position. I’ve been blessed in unimaginable ways over the last 8 1/2 years. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to work for such a fabulous organization and genuinely great people.
