    Pastor Heather is a graduate of the University of Miami (BM), University of Central Florida (M.Ed.), and Duke Divinity School (M.Div.). She began serving at Fleming Island UMC in July of 2016. Before experiencing the call to ministry, she worked as a music teacher in Dade and Orange Counties.

    "I believe that God transforms our lives through the power of love, made known in the person of Jesus and inspired by the power of the Holy Spirit. I believe that the nature and mission of the church is to transform lives of the people of the church so that they can go out and connect others with God’s transforming power."
