I grew up as a United Methodist and parted ways with United Methodism due to a difference in beliefs. I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from West Virginia Wesleyan College, and a Master of Divinity from Asbury Theological Seminary. In previous years, I served as a pastor of several churches. I am currently serving as a Hospice Chaplain with Amedisys Hospice. I live in Morgantown, WV with my cat and my dog.
