A Counselor in Training
A bio usually includes a list of degrees, years of service and other valuable ways to measure qualifications. The development of this website finds me just getting started on all of those things. I do however, have some experience. Since childhood I have had the formidable desire to step into the emotions of others. I run toward those who are hurting when some would run away. My husband and I were in full-time ministry for fifteen years and I served on a church staff for two years. More recently, three years working at Covenant College was a turning point.

Now, I’m working toward a degree that will help open doors in order to merge this area of personal giftedness and occupation.
