Describe your primary responsibilities at First:
My responsibilities as Financial Assistant include the counting and posting of contributions weekly, supplying contribution statements to Covenant Partners on a regular basis, accounts payable, and payroll processing for the church staff and Child Development Center staff, accounts receivables for the CDC, payroll withholding tax payments and quarterly / annual reconciliations, and working closely with the Church Administrator for any needs he may have.
What are your favorite books?
The Bible, of course, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, and The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
What is your favorite thing to do in Florence?
It’s somewhat sad, but I love to shop and eat. Florence has plenty of options in both areas.
Tell us about your family:
I am very proud of my family. My husband, Chris, is as good as they come. He is the Florence Area Manager for Black’s Tire Service. He works hard but still manages to take care of me! We have two children. Our daughter and her husband live in Hilton Head and have two children who are the apples of our eyes. Our son lives in Gainesville, Fla., and is an Industrial Designer for a great company. We have one other child — our dog, Hogan.
Why are you excited to be a part of First?
First Presbyterian has been an answered prayer for me! I was fortunate to have worked at another local church for 13 years, which gave me the knowledge and experience to be able to bring that to First Presbyterian when this position opened up in 2015. I have truly loved every minute of my time here. The people made me feel right at home from the very beginning. My co-workers are the absolute best. I cannot imagine being anywhere else.
