I was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and moved to Orlando for the Disney College Program in 2012. I work full-time at Walt Disney World and heard about Mosaic from a coworker who would soon become my best friend. That seemingly chance meeting set my life on a new trajectory, leading and challenging me to pursue a personal and authentic relationship with God and revealing the calling to make God’s kingdom known in Central Florida.
My parents are Deaf which means I’m a CODA (Child of Deaf Adults) and I’m fluent in American Sign Language. Growing up in both the hearing world and the Deaf community has given me a unique perspective and deep ministry passion to ensure that the Hearing Impaired and Deaf communities have access to the gospel and Christian community.
As a teenager, I participated in several Christian groups – from my Catholic Church involvement, to Young Life, to my friends’ Church ministries. My life was full of fun and safe communities where I could discover who God is. As an adult, I am so glad for the chance to serve here at Mosaic Students. Through things like keeping track of the details, preparing in advance, managing the calendar, and instilling structure; I get to help teenagers at Mosaic experience the gospel. It’s a privilege and I cherish Wednesday nights and how I get to contribute to this team of passionate Christ-followers.
God has been so good in every season of my life, and I’m thankful for the simple things like crafting, birthday club with my besties, and Jeep rides. I treasure my friends who bring me great joy and also challenge me to follow Jesus more faithfully day by day. I’m a foster parent while also balancing two jobs I’m very passionate about. So… life is full, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
