Year of graduation from Harrison County - 1994


Harrison County High School

Kentucky Christian University

Present Positions:

Third Grade Teacher at Sonlight Academy
Missionary in Port-de-Paix, Haiti

I graduated from Harrison County High School in 1994. After graduation I was excited to attend Kentucky Christian University in Grayson, Kentucky. I had gone to many summer camps there and my older brother went there, so it was an easy decision for me. I started pursuing a career in education, but I really wanted to serve in ministry in some capacity. I especially had a heart for missions.

For the next 16 years, my husband and I lived in Nicholasville, Kentucky, and Canton, Ohio, where I was a stay-at-home mom. As our four children grew older, I volunteered in the public schools and with an inner city mission. I also served alongside my husband in youth ministry. Several years ago, my husband and I started asking each other what it would look like for our whole family to be serving and on mission together. We started to pursue what that might look like.

As a result, since 2011 our family has been living and working in Port-de-Paix, Haiti. I am currently serving as the third grade teacher at Sonlight Academy. There is a great need in Haiti for quality education, and an even deeper need for Jesus. At Sonlight we strive to provide both. I love that I get to speak into kids lives, and share God’s story with students every day!

We see poverty everywhere we turn. Poverty is complex. It isn’t just a financial issue, but it can be a poverty of the soul. In Haiti we see both. There is much need for good news here, and our family is on a mission to bring it. We love being able to live on mission together!

Success to me means knowing the One who made you, understanding how you fit into His story, and following Him. It’s pretty simple. I certainly don’t think you need to move to Haiti to do that!

Had I known that I would eventually be living in Haiti, I definitely would have paid more attention in Madame Wyles’s French class! The two official languages in Haiti are French and Haitian Creole. I think of her often and love how God used that class from high school to help me serve Him years later.
