Vickie was born in Kannapolis, NC and has lived in the area most of her life. While spending most of her past time in the insurance industry, she retired in 2012 and joined the staff of Nazareth Community Church in November, 2013. With 45 years experience in various church music ministries, she enjoys worshiping the Lord with her musical talents and teaching others to do the same. She is a trained musician in piano and organ as well as an instructor in these areas. Her philosophy is one of allowing the Spirit of the Lord to lead the worship music, and those participating to follow Him in that leading. She and her husband, Keith, have enjoyed providing music together for God's work for 30 years. They enjoy spending time with their six children and 15 grandchildren. Vickie's favorite hobbies are cooking, sewing, working in the yard and playing golf.
