David, my husband, and I have two boys Ben and Mateo. We live in a multi-generational home with my mother Rebecca (‘Lita’) Bayes who also attends the Church of the Good Samaritan. I have a doctorate in Molecular and Cellular Biology and have worked in drug development for over 10 years for a Fortune 100 pharmaceutical company as a project team leader. Our family started to regularly attend worship at Good Samaritan at the end of 2012 after completing the Alpha course. I have been involved in several ministries including Alpha as a co-leader, and the Women’s Insight Retreat in various roles including small group leader, mistress of ceremonies, prayer minister and small group leader co-coordinator.
