Who am I? I'm the proud (and occasionally tired) mother of Sarah and Taylor, and grateful wife of Chris Neal. I grew up in Stone Mountain, GA, where I was raised Episcopalian. I completed engineering school at UVA, then earned my Masters in Engineering from Virginia Tech. After working outside D.C. for several years, I moved to San Francisco, where I met my husband. My Tarheel husband convinced me that Chapel Hill is the best place to raise a family, so we moved here in 2006.
What do I do at Christ Church? I am the Assistant for Children's Ministries, part-time. I love being a part of Vacation Bible School, the Christmas pageant, Sunday School, and family fellowship opportunities here. (My introduction to Vacation Bible School at CUMC 3 years ago was the initial catalyst for really getting involved.) I am thrilled to be here!
Something interesting about me is: I used to work on spy satellite communications for Lockheed Martin. Earlier, at UVA, I was in an incredible a cappella group. I love to sing, hike, jog, and read.
My favorite Bible passage is Psalm 139, especially verse 5: "You hem me in, behind and before, you lay your hand upon me."
