I grew up in Miami and came to know the Lord at age 11. I knew in seventh grade that I wanted to be a missionary. I have a degree in art education, am a teacher and have taken numerous short-term mission trips all over the world. I pray that God will continue to be glorified in my life, and that He will use me to reach out to the nations. I enjoy meeting new people and traveling to exotic places. I utilize every opportunity to tell others of my love for Jesus, His healing power and His saving grace. In 2004, I traveled to Eastern Sibera to complete the adoption of my toddler son. I love kids and pray that God will give me more children. I love sports (i. e. , baseball, football, hockey, tennis and golf) . I enjoy romantic walks on the beach in the evening, dining out and curling up with a good book by the fireplace.
