She attended seminary and received a degree in Pastoral Theology and later went back for a degree in Art/Crafts Education with an emphasis in Project-Based Learning.

She then took a sabbatical from teaching to take care of her children, Ruth and John, when they were young! The last few years in Haiti she taught English to college students. She also worked in a preschool there for several children involved in the ministries in Haiti. It was a trilingual school (English, French and Spanish), parent taught and a very unique experience. In 2009 she moved to Texas, and her husband, Mike, joined Hope for the Hungry as the missions director. She worked in Belton as a substitute teacher, then as a pre-K paraprofessional.
