I began serving as Director of Youth Ministries in June 2013. While I was born in Tennessee and lived some time in Arkansas and Missouri, I grew up right here, in Edmond. I attended Edmond Public Schools from Kindergarten through High School and have gone on to earn my Associate’s degree in English with an education emphasis from OSU-OKC. I am currently pursuing my Bachelor’s degree in English Education from UCO.

After joining Southern Hills I became connected in several areas of the church, but those that involved the youth really captured my heart. I co-directed the drama team, volunteered in their Sunday school classes, and even braved the youth lock-in! I have always wanted to be in education and when the opportunity to work directly with this truly amazing group of young people appeared, I knew it was exactly where God was leading me.

I am married to Timothy Brooks and together we are blessed with three children, our sons Britton and Xavier, and his daughter (my step-daughter) Lauren. Tim is also a very active member of SHCC and we feel truly blessed to be a part of such a loving and supportive church family. I look forward to teaching, learning from, working, playing, worshipping, and growing with the youth of Southern Hills for many years to come.
