“I have the most amazing family and best job in the world!”
When my husband and I stood in the middle of the Hope Reins parking lot for the first time, we felt the tangible presence of the Holy Spirit: “Possible” was the word I heard whispered to me that day. At the time, I did not know what God meant by that word, but in the following weeks, as I prayed for His clarity, I knew there was no other place I would rather invest my time and passion.
God knew I could tell the story of a life that had been fully restored in Christ — mine! And, I’m privileged to witness each week how His narrative of hope and healing is woven throughout the lives of kids and families we serve here at Hope Reins.
I have worked with children in several capacities throughout my professional career, including as a preschool teacher and director, and as Children’s Ministry Director for our former church in Little River, SC. While in high school, I founded and managed a riding program for a coed summer camp in Wake Forest, NC, teaching riding lessons for ten years!
As Coordinator, it’s my joy to implement our behind-the-scenes look at what Hope Reins is all about through our one-hour tours, aptly titled Stories of Hope Tours. Anyone and everyone are invited to take this first step in discovering more about our beautiful ranch, how our kids and horses rescue each other and the inspiring stories of restoration.
I am the mom of two amazing children, who both have a passion for life and the Lord! We moved back to the Raleigh area in 2016, after I met, then married my best friend, Scott, a godly man who has brought such joy and healing to the three of us – and helped me see how only God can heal the deepest pain and loss.
Besides God and my family, there is nothing I am more passionate about than horses – and sharing the nurturing, healing relationship that these majestic creatures were created to inspire.
