at HERITAGE HIGH SCHOOL
I am from Fort Worth, Texas. I graduated from Southwest High School. After high school I enlisted in the U.S. Air Force. I met my wife and best friend, Kristal and we married in 1994. After serving 4 years, I answered the call of God on my life and entered in to ministry. I served in Youth and Children’s ministry from 1997 – 2011. My family and I moved to Midlothian in 2006 and fell in love with the community. I took a sabbatical from ministry to return to school and pursue a B.S. in Criminal Justice from Texas A&M-Commerce. Kristal and I have two amazing kids, Dylan and Ashlyn.
at MAYPEARL HIGH SCHOOL
I have lived in Maypearl for the past 3 years and am proud to call myself a Panther! I have been married to my husband, Jeff, for 15 years and we have 3 amazing children: Meagan who is 13 and in 8th grade, Garrett who is 12 and in 7th grade, and Cutter who is 7 and in 2nd grade. We attend church at First Baptist church in Maypearl and I place The Lord above all things. I have been a stay at home mom for the past 13 years, but have worked with “at-risk” kids for many years. My passion is to love, guide and mentor kids that are overlooked and struggling. I am very excited to see how God is going to use me in the coming years and I look forward to partnering with the staff at Maypearl High.
