It is my honor and privilege to continue serving the residents of BTH on the campus this year. The previous 3 years, I served many of the residents through my work as an Intern and Associate at Summit Counseling (FBCJ).

It gives me great joy to play a role in the Lord's provision for the transformation of a soul.


God has provided for my healing from traumatic experiences through counseling and spiritual discovery. This motivated me to pursue a career in counseling, which seemed a natural transition from 10 years as a Classroom Teacher and Mother  After years of training, I have obtained the credentials to practice professionally. I find great fulfillment in serving at BTH with the Rumfelts, Rosemary and so many volunteers.

I thank God for giving my life healing and meaning after 27 years of addiction. I came to faith in Christ while I was in prison, September 27 th 2012. I came to Buried Treasures Home as a resident in 2013. After completing the program I was asked to stay on as a Team Leader. I was mentored by Pastor Clark and Mrs. Valerie and two years later I was hired as Supervising Mentor and Assistant.


Working at Buried Treasures Home has helped me understand my calling from the Lord. I find fulfillment helping women overcome addictions and past hurts. I truly love working here being a servant of the Lord and watching as the Lord transforms the women’s lives.
