Cindy joined the Southside family in 1985, making her the official staff antique. A proud graduate of Florida State University with a major in Latin (yes, you read that correctly), she discovered her true calling as a church administrative assistant after two years as a high school teacher. In addition to serving as the pastoral ministry assistant, Cindy sings in the choir, plays handbells, volunteers with guest services, and makes occasional appearances as her bossy alter ego, Beatrice Thistlebottom. Cindy lives in Mandarin with her parents, Ray and Dorothy, and enjoys reading, travel, and collecting nativities, many of which are on display in her office. Feel free to stop by and see them! She is also an active member of P.E.O., a women’s educational philanthropy. In case you were wondering, she can be influenced with gifts of chocolate.
