Joined the Team:
August 2013

Training Ground:
My previous employer, SVI, a powerhouse training and development firm, really challenged and amped my writing skills and creativity.  While at SVI, they gave me the opportunity to work as part of the team to refine the first Leadership@Work Study on the Book of Nehemiah for its marketplace release. Before moving to Arkansas, I worked (and still do part time work) for the National Association of Mothers’ Centers, a nonprofit that provides resources for mothers and families, and Legend Development Services where I provided sales training and coaching. Prior to that, I worked for several organizations engaged in developing and teaching technology solutions.

I love the outdoors, music and art, dancing and visiting with close friends sharing a slice of life together.

My first hero is Jesus, because He is my one and only savior, He has rescued me and loves me with a love that is bigger than I can contain. And it is thanks to my 70-something mother, Rochelle Chawner, that I know Jesus and have faith in Him. She has always been there for me through all kinds of wild times and has shared the love of Christ with me without fail.

Best Advice Received:
Let go and let God.

Listen to:
I love Contemporary Christian music. I also love jazz, classical (the kind that is a bit more upbeat and artistic), new age and pop. I love music. Aside from music, I also love listening to Joyce Meyer. She was my first Bible teacher.

Dream Destination:
Australia. I love the ocean and would love to visit the Great Barrier Reef and swim with dolphins.

Most People Don’t Know this About Me:
I LOVE the cello and played for many years. I dream of owning a cello again so I can pick it up and play now and then.
