Job Title: Preschool Coordinator

How did you find Vista?
I was raised by my grandparents due to my brother being so sick and often in the hospital. I came to Texas in May 2005 and had never been a follower of Jesus. I tried the Church of Christ and it was my first taste of religion. My family and I moved to the West Temple and saw Vista and in Jan of 2016 we decided to try different churches to help grow our faith. Vista happened to be the 1st one we tried and have called Vista home since.
What are you currently watching on Netflix?
I usually fall asleep watching Friends, Greys Anatomy or a good ole Murder Mystery Doc on Netflix.
What books are you currently reading?
I am currently reading Lead Small and also What Women Fear.
What was your first job – struggles and all?
My very first job was when I was sixteen at Burger King, but that didn’t last long and I learned quickly I do not do fast food jobs well. I was the girl who if you asked for a sandwich with no tomato I’d some how mange to receive that as extra tomatoes. If memory serves me correctly I was fired.
What is your favorite place in the world?
My favorite place in the world is Six Flags. There is nothing better than spending all day with my family at Six Flags.
And favorite comfort food after a long week?
My favorite comfort food after a long week would be anything I don’t have to cook.
What are you most passionate about?
I am passionate about the kids ministry – not just kids but all the way to middle school. Knowing Jesus at age two looks very different at age twelve and so on, and I just love being part of a church who partners with parents and helps us understand this concept at each level. I did not know Jesus when I was a kid so I have a very intentional purpose in letting kids know who Jesus is and that he loves them.
What most excites you about joining the Vista team?
There are so many reasons I am excited to be part of Vista but the one that excites me the most is knowing I’m working and serving our Lord at a church that met me and loved me where I was. Because of the love I have felt from Vista I was able to rid my shame and guilt and be who God made me to be. I’d love to help someone feel that way.
