What brought you to Gordon?
As an alumna of Gordon, I’ve always had fun memories of my days and nights here. I loved the ability to have amazing conversations with my students and share my faith openly. Gordon has always felt like home and I want to help students have the same feeling when they walk on campus.

What is your favorite part about working in Residence Life? 
The Residence staff is amazing! We are so committed to our students and to each other’s growth that it fosters very healthy working atmosphere. 

What is your favorite thing about Gordon?
The campus is so beautiful, every day I wake up with such a great joy that I get to live here! The faculty and staff are so caring and are always willing to mentor our students. I also love the ever growing diverse student body. They help me grow in every aspect of my life.

What do you enjoy doing during your free time??
I am a jack of all trades! I really enjoy organizing events, weddings are my favorite! I just got a Circuit that I am obsessed with! I am also a graphic designer. I love art in its various forms so I try to practice it as much as possible.

Favorite memory from College:
I knew that during college I wanted to travel as much as possible. I got the opportunity to go on a mission trip to Guatemala my sophomore year. We spent the night at Lake Atitlan, which had very little light pollution. That night was completely clear and the sky was filled with starts. The sky was so dark it felt like I was under a black bedsheet with tiny holds I could poke my fingers through. One of the other members of the trip was a few rooms over just strumming his guitar on the balcony and for that moment I felt the most overwhelming peace I have ever experience. I had a conversation with God as he showed off his incredible creation to me.

What is your favorite hall event?
​Since this is my first year the best is yet to come! I love my staff so far so I am excited to see what amazing ideas they will bring to the table.
