I was born and raised in Texas. I grew up in DeSoto and Midlothian and had fun cheering as an Eagle and Panther.  After graduating from Dallas Baptist University, I worked at Walt Disney World in Florida as an intern. I moved back to Texas in 2015 and returned to serving at Hillcrest. I have served in children’s ministry and as Director of Communications for the past 5 years.

My dad happens to be the pastor here, Pastor Mike, and my mom, Mrs. Beverly, is the best 4th grade teacher you will ever meet. I have an older sister, Martha Harvey who lives in New Jersey with her husband Dallas, and my favorite niece Eloise. My older brother, Marcus lives in Ft. Worth with his wife Kirsten. I can’t forget about my doggos, Maximus and Prissy!

My favorite part about Hillcrest is serving with my Hillcrest family!

Education: Bachelor of Arts from Dallas Baptist University
Years I joined Hillcrest:
Member since 1992, Staff since 2010

What was your childhood nickname? Tines, because I am the youngest and shortest member of my family.
