From Mollie: I am so excited to be a part of the CVBCC. I come from a background of sign language interpretation and special education teacher for SAISD for many years. I felt a strong calling to do the part of my job I always loved best which was listening and working to help kids handle their challenges. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Education from Angelo State. I have now finished my degree in Biblical Counseling and am now pursuing a Masters from Liberty University. I have been married to an awesome guy for 36 years, and we have four precious children who are all teachers too. We have one beautiful granddaughter. God is allowing me to fulfill my dream and passion by helping those who are hurting and encourage them to turn their focus to Him! He is our hope!
