Nurtured to serve, i signed up
Born in Houston, Texas, I grew up as a young person in Paris, France. My parents were based there as liaison missionaries in the 1960's, serving in Europe and beyond on behalf of our denomination. Beginning in the1970's they pastored a
vibrant church in Cleveland, Ohio, one that had an intentional commitment to local, national and international missions. During those years I answered a call to full-time vocational ministry, joined my parents in congregational work in the early 1980's, and earned an undergraduate degree from John Carroll University.
The calling led me further
We moved back to Houston in 1988. Over the next few years I completed my Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry degrees from Houston Graduate School of Theology, was involved in a church planting program, and later joined the ministry team of another congregation in Houston. I was also an educator and worked on development, public relations and communication projects with faith-based and non-profit programs.
Serving a special cause
I joined the staff at The Brookwood Community in 1996. Brookwood is a nationally and internationally recognized nonprofit offering exceptional opportunities for adults with special needs. For over 19 years I managed the organization's annual multi-million dollar development program as Director of Advancement. It was a privilege to represent this innovative mission to foundations, corporations, civic and religious organizations and individuals in the private sector.
A new chapter of service
Since retiring from Brookwood in December, 2015, I've dedicated this next chapter in my life to continued service to others and for God's glory. That's why I launched Intentional Consulting LLC, a business providing short-term consulting services to select non-profits and ministries.
