As President, I have the privilege to oversee and execute our mission of “Restoring the identity of kids so they will understand their great value and be a blessing to others.” This is done through oversight and visionary guidance of staff programs and daily operations. I also have the opportunity to build deep relationships with the community of supporters that have funded The Children’s Home for almost 100 years, connecting their desires to produce generational change with wonderful kids who need this encouragement. The best part of my job, however, is the opportunity to play with, impact and be around some of the most amazing kids I have ever worked with in my 25+ years of experience.
Those 25 years have included time spent as the Coordinator of Behavioral Sciences for the Amarillo Independent School district, the Young Adult Pastor at First Presbyterian Church of Amarillo and as a special education teacher and coach. I have also been actively participating in ministry for over 20 years. My ministry background includes: Young Life Area Director, church planter, family pastor, youth pastor, worship leader, camp speaker and retreat director in addition to many volunteer positions. The joy of my life, however, is my four children: two biological sons and two daughters that God blessed me with through adoption.
