Marketing Director, College and Career Advisor
BA from University of Miami - Business Administration, 1988
MBA from University of Texas at Austin - Marketing, 1990
Certified by ACSI
Two pivotal events happened at The University of Texas at Austin: I received an MBA in marketing and I met my husband, Scott. Imagine our consternation when our business law professor proclaimed our courtship to be "precipitous" and “ill advised.” Praise God the professor’s allegations were unfounded since we’ve now been happily married for more than 26 years!
During our time together, Scott and I have been blessed with three children, Steven (21 years old), Bethany (19 years old) and Carissa (14 years old). We also have a fox terrier named Grace. In addition, we have supported and started several non-denominational churches, including GlassHouse Church which currently meets at Lake Norman Christian School. Over the years, I have taught ladies’ Bible studies, provided Biblically-based counseling services, directed children’s church, led prayer ministry teams, and participated with the music ministry. I love reclining by the ocean to read a book, snuggling in front of a fireplace, sledding, and hiking. My favorite times are when my older children are home from college and our whole family is together.
Throughout my marketing career, I have worked for several nonprofit corporations including Crisis Intervention of Houston and numerous churches. My role at Ryder Corporation allowed me to oversee the writing, publishing, and distribution of corporate newsletters to all US Ryder dealerships. As president of Write Now!, I provided marketing and public relations expertise to numerous clients. I also served as the editor of two published books.
College & Career Planning
When our two older children became high school students, I devoted myself full-time to exploring the college application process. The results speak for themselves: our children now attend an ivy league university, have been offered more than half a million dollars in scholarships and grants, and have received national prominence through accolades including the Silver Knight Award and the Posse Foundation.
I am thrilled to be able to bring my experience and passion for marketing as well as college and career planning to Lake Norman Christian School. I can’t wait to see what God will do in the coming years as we prepare our graduating students for life after high school.

Nor have entered into the heart of man
