Hometown: Mastic Beach, New York.
Testimony: As a kid I was forced to go to church but as I got older I chose the things of this world instead of doing what I knew was right. After losing my dad in a tragic hunting accident what I once did for fun became a way to escape reality. I was a full blown crack and opiate addict by age 25. I had a college degree but my life was such a mess I couldn’t keep a job. I knew there was more to life and God was the only one that could help me.
Teen Challenge Center: Fort Myers Women
The Purpose and Calling God has Given Me: I was called into Missions where my purpose is to reach out and help the lost and hopeless.
ELP’s Impact on my Leadership: I learned to be a servant leader. I have also learned that being a leader at times means doing the jobs no one else wants to do and doing them with a smile on my face and joy in my heart. Everything I do, I do for the Glory of God and with Integrity.
