The Gathering Gang
Born in the upstate of South Carolina and raised in the historic town of Cowpens, (SC) I had the good fortune of having Christian parents and grandparents, who saw that I was schooled and a regular attendee of church. The church has been a vital part of my life from a very early age. I was saved and baptized at 8 years of age.
A graduate of Cowpens High School and Wofford College, I entered the medical field during school as a tech in a local pharmacy. After graduation, I started my career in medical purchasing at two hospitals. It was there that I had the opportunity to enter the medical sales field. In 1989, I changed fields to selling different types of oils/petroleum (Shell) to industries primarily in the southeast and for a time covered the east coast. After 42 years in sales, I was blessed to retire here in Myrtle Beach.
I have been a member of Gathering Community Church for two years and humbled and honored to be a deacon for the past year. I enjoy Bible Studies and am a member of the Ushering Team, a Stephen Minister, and also serve as a Prayer Warrior with the Gathering Prayer Group.
I have a son and daughter and two grandchildren. I make my home at Ocean Lakes, where I enjoy music and anything involving water, the beach, the pool, and the waterpark.
