What I appreciate most about the Bethlehem House?
I appreciate the family-like atmosphere.

Loving the ladies until they can love themselves. Watching the seeds that are planted, watered and fertilized BLOOM into beautiful extraordinary, empowered women!

A phrase you’re caught saying the most:Anything is possible to him who believes.

Most memorable experience at Bethlehem House:
As an employee having the opportunity to be a part of a reunification of a mother and her children. Also, watching the love as a mother puts her newborn on her chest.

Favorite Pastime:Motorcycle rides and trips, camping, reading books, visiting loved ones.

Motto:Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a stepping stone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping and never giving up.
