BECKA EPPLEY
Interim Communications Coordinator

IN A NUTSHELL
I grew up mostly in the western half of the United States. The places I remember the most are San Luis Obispo, CA and Pueblo, CO. My Carolina native husband says that this makes me a Yankee, but his family has welcomed me with open arms in spite of my sorted past. After graduating college with a degree in Communications, I moved to Nashville, TN.  In Nashville I pursued a career in the Christian Music Industry which turned out to be short lived.  I went on to work in property management for several years. While living in Nashville I would meet my husband on a blind date, and we would get married two and a half years later. Our oldest, Shane would be born in the fall of 2009. Raising a family is not easy when you have no extended family within driving distance, which among other things, led us to move to Charlotte in May of 2013 to be close to my husband's family.

I SHARE MY LIFE WITH
My husband Jessee who is an Enneagram Nine and our son Shane (age 7) and Sara Mae (age 4). Our home would not be complete with out our sweet pup, Clifford and two cats, Sammy and Ash.

HOW I COLLIDED WITH WATERSHED
After living in Nashville for almost ten years I knew that moving to Charlotte and only knowing my husband's family was going to be hard. So months before we moved I started googling churches and reading through more websites then I can count. I kept coming back to Watershed’s website.  After visiting Watershed a handful of times during our first summer in Charlotte, we decided to participate in Preface. Preface changed everything for us, we knew we had found a spiritual community we could grow with.

FAVORITE FACET OF WATERSHED
I love how as a community we are continually evolving, learning and changing.

FAVORITE QC SPOTS
Freedom Park, JCC swimming pool (during the warmer months) and my backyard.

MORE, PLEASE
I love trying new local restaurant/breweries. I cannot get enough of Brene Brown as an author and a speaker. Podcasts are always on in the car – The Liturgists, Robcast, and more.

CURRENT LIFE LEARNING
There is peace in the unknown.
