I was born in Africa-Cameroon and was baptized in the Presbyterian church in Cameroon. I joined the children's ministry known as the Young Presbyterian (YP), then later the Christian Youth Fellowship (CYF) and the Christian Women Fellowship (CWF). I was a member the finance committee of the church before leaving for the US in 2005. I served as an elder in St. John's Presbyterian Church in California before leaving for Texas with my family in 2010. I have also served as an elder in the First Presbyterian Church of Arlington.
I am married and have three children.
