A Bit About Me

I am blessed and honored to be the Executive Director of IHNO and to have the opportunity to serve God by serving others. 


Over the years, I have learned that there are three stages of life:

  1. The calm before the “storm” - this where we are at peace and life is stable

  2. Inside the “storm” - this where we feel tossed around by real or perceived troubles

  3. The other side of the “storm” - hopefully, this is where we enter back into the calm with lessons that will help us avoid experiencing the same “storm” 


I believe God has allowed me to experience many, many “storms” in my life (loss of loved ones, the bitterness of divorce, the hurt of betrayal, the devastation of family abuse(s), etc.):

  1. So that I could fully accept and experience His Love, Mercy, and Grace in the darkest of times (2 Corinthians 1: 4).

  2. So that I would be equipped with the knowledge and wisdom needed to help others in similar situations. 

  3.  So that I could learn from those storms and be able to appreciate the Calm and Peace that can only be found in a relationship with Him, through His Son Jesus Christ 


I also believe that everyone is “recovering from something” (grief, anger, depression, etc.), and that is why I have the title of Recovery Specialist - together, we can work on a recovery plan for you or your loved one.


Finally, I believe that God has a Plan and a Purpose for everything that happens in our lives

(Jeremiah 32:19). 


Please allow me to help you come out of your “Storm”, Recover from your troubles, and find your God-given Purpose by completing the form below or calling IHNO at (716) 464-3681 to request an appointment (either in person or via Zoom).
