Elaine was born in West Palm Beach, FL and is in fact a 5th generation Floridian! She attended Palm Beach Atlantic University, majoring in vocal music. She enjoys administrative work and serves in the office as the only administrative staff. She was in Preschool Ministry for almost 30 years; serving in that ministry for many years at First Baptist Church of West Palm Beach, and for five years at Memorial, as well. She has been married to Jack for over 30 years. They have three children: two daughters (living in this area) and a son who currently works for and attends PBAU, as well as a grandson. Her life verse is Proverbs 3:5-6.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
In addition to church work, Elaine is passionate about music and barbershop harmony. She is a member and Associate Director of a local, award-winning Sweet Adelines International barbershop Chorus (Women of Note). If she has any spare time after that, she also likes to crochet, read, cook and play golf with Jack.
