What brought you to Gordon?
I came to Gordon because I wanted to participate in the college’s mission of developing intellectual and spiritually mature Christian leaders committed to lives of service and prepared for global leadership.  
 
What is your favorite part about working in Residence Life?
My favorite part of residence life is the chance to work so closely with students. My four years at an undergraduate Christian college were some of the most formative years of my life in developing my character, faith, and vocation. I love residence life because I get to journey alongside students as they grow and develop into the men and women God is calling them to be.
 
What is your favorite thing about Gordon?
My favorite part of Gordon is the chance to work amidst a culture that is both academically rigorous and Gospel centered. It is a joy to live and work alongside bright Christian who are either seeking to leverage their intellect towards Kingdom development or learning to use their gifts and abilities to glorify God.

What do you enjoy doing during your free time?
During my free time I enjoy doing anything that gets me outside. Whether that’s exploring a new neighborhood in a city, taking on a new outdoor adventure, or playing sports recreationally, if it gets me outside I am happy. I’m also an avid reader with a passion for keep print medium alive. This year I’d also like to expand my culinary horizons.
 
Favorite memory from College:
My favorite memory from college was traveling to the Holy Lands with 30 other Wheaton Students. We spent 3 weeks in Israel and 3 weeks split between Turkey, Greece, and Italy. The Scriptures really come alive as you stand in the place Jesus walked and explore the regions where Paul planted churches. My best friend from college was also on the trip and our time abroad together provided some of the richest moments of our friendship.
