I attended public elementary school in Waverly, Ohio and graduated June 9th, 1978 from Tampa Bay Vocational-Technical High School in Tampa, Florida.
I attended the University of Tampa in Tampa, Florida earning the Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology in 1996. During this time I also served as Associate Pastor for the Community of Christ in Clearwater, FL., and then as Pastor until January of 2004.
Sensing God's direction to improve my pastoral counseling skills, I attended Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA earning the Master of Arts degree in Counseling & Human Relations in 2006.
I am now currently pursuing a PhD in Human Services from Capella University in order to further expand my counseling skills and add depth of understanding regarding how best to meet the psychological, social and spiritual needs of God's people. I expect to graduate in Spring 2010.
