My name is Damaris Mora Nevitt and I am the pianist at Buechel United Methodist Church. My husband and I moved to Louisville from sunny, South Florida in August 2022 and I am still trying to acclimate to the cold temperatures. My musical journey began by the age of six when my parents secured piano lessons and they could not keep me off the piano keys. A life of service began and I have never had regrets. I have had the privilege of traveling to Russia, Scandinavia, the United Kingdom and France and all across the country as a singer/pianist proclaiming God's love and message to all people. I am truly blessed to be here facilitating worship at Buechel. I am mom to four "bonus" children and wife to Richard. Feel free to drop me a line or say "Hello" on Sundays!
Soli Deo Gloria. Only To God Be The Glory.
