I am an Horry County native. I am married to Kevin McGrath and have four boys. I graduated from Coastal Carolina University with a BA in Sociology. I am co-owner of Value Systems. We sell, service and install restaurant point of sale systems along the Grand Strand and parts of the Southeast. I have worked at the Department of Social Services as a foster care case manager, Citizens Against Spouse Abuse as a case manager and Sea Haven, Inc. as a program director serving homeless, runaway, at risk youth. My family and I have been attending Seacoast Vineyard Church for 13 years and I serve as the intercessory prayer team leader. My passions are seeing youth reach their full potential, adoption advocacy and serving my church through prayer. I enjoy watching movies, spending time with family, dancing and dining out.
