What brought you to Gordon?
The working of the Holy Spirit led me to a place where I can use my spiritual gifts and love on students in an effective way. I truly believe I am doing what I love.

What is your favorite part about working in Residence Life?
I love students! I love walking alongside people and caring for them as they sort through what God’s calling is in their lives.

What is your favorite thing about Gordon?
I believe everything about Gordon is intentional. This community is built on loving relationships and everyone is genuine in their interactions.

What do you enjoy doing during your free time?
I enjoy reading young adult novels such as Chronicles of Narnia. I love game nights and hosting parties. I also love catching up with friends and sharing quirky rituals like watching TV shows and calling each other during commercial breaks. I do love cooking wonderful meals for other people as well.

What is your favorite college memory?
The first thing that comes to mind is a city wide blackout that happened my freshmen year. The whole city of Marquette lost power and it was crazy in a good way. Everyone came together to share resources and stories by candlelight, carpooled to fast-food places in the next town, and some people even wore halloween costumes to lighten the mood!

What is your favorite hall event?
I would have to say King of the Hill is my favorite hall event. Hundreds of students from the three halls on the hill engage in an epic battle to save their RD. There are forts made of cardboard, and with water balloons and duct tape involved, who could ask for anything more?
