Personal Information

What do you do here at Saint Mark?
I handle all financial duties of the church (contributions, payables, payroll, quarterly and annual tax preparation, monthly financial statements, etc.). I also maintain the building and bus use calendar. I coordinate building repairs with the vendors and Facilities Manager.

When did you begin working at Saint Mark?
I came to Saint Mark the end of March, 2007 as Administrative Assistant. In March, 2012 I transferred over to my current position.

What was your first job?
Early in high school I had a temporary (at home) job typing for a former Clemson basketball coach. When I turned 16, I began working every summer at Alice Manufacturing Company in the Spinning Department.

What was your childhood ambition?
I always wanted to work in an office.

Who inspires you?
My Mom inspires me. After quitting high school to get a job, she went back and earned her GED some 40 years later. After my Dad died, she took driving lessons and got her license…at the age of 66. She’s a great role model, encourager and mighty prayer warrior.

Favorite Bible story, verse or passage?
It’s hard to pick a favorite…I love all of the Bible. When I’m feeling anxious, I love to read Hebrews 13:5 “…I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” I love Psalm 48:10, “Be still, and know that I am God…” How encouraging to read 1 Corinthians 1:9, “God is faithful…” I enjoy reading about the lives of Joseph, David and Peter (of whom I can often identify). But, I’m especially thankful to be one of the “whosoevers” in Romans 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
