My name is LaWanda Harris. I was born and raised in Camden, AR where I attended First Presbyterian Church in Camden. I graduated from Southern Arkansas University in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing. After graduating, I relocated to Little Rock, AR to take a position where I currently work, CHI St. Vincent Infirmary. I am a nurse in the operating room. I joined Pulaski Heights Presbyterian Church in Little Rock and currently serve on the church session. I regularly teach the youth Sunday School Class, and I sometimes serve as the adult Sunday School Class teacher when the minister is out of town. I am also an inquirer in the Presbytery. This summer, I started an online 4 year Master of Divinity Program through the University of Dubuque. My desire is to become a chaplain, particularly in the hospital setting. I hope to combine nursing and ministry. Not only do patients seek a ministerial presence, but nurses, doctors, and families also value a pastoral presence in the hospital. It has been a busy, but God-led journey to ministry to far. I am looking forward to serving God's people not only from a nurse perspective, but also a minster's perspective.
