What do you do as Executive Director?
My job is to measure everything I do by our mission statement: to transform lives through worship, fellowship and hands-on mission. To achieve that, I focus on fundraising, building relationships, and recruiting volunteers so we can continue to have a growing and vibrant program. 

What are your favorite memories of working at OMP?
Watching a child use his wheelchair ramp for the first time; seeing the look on a mother's face when she knew she didn't have to carry her son out of the house anymore; reading a thank you letter from a youth that now has a relationship with God because of what they experienced at OMP. 

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A talk show host.
