What brought you to Gordon?
I feel like God really opened the door for me to come to Gordon after spending six years at Wheaton College. As I was learning about the institution, I was struck by the many similarities between the schools, particularly in their shared focus on Christian commitment and rigorous liberal arts education. I am excited to learn more about Gordon’s history and culture, and jump into life as a part of the campus community in hopes of making the campus and the North Shore a place that feels like home!

What is your favorite part about working in Residence Life? 
Residence Life is so unique in the ways that it allows for face-to-face, life-on-life fellowship, support, and challenge with students. I really value the front-row seat to watching God’s work in student’s growth and development that the proximity of the job affords. 

What is your favorite thing about Gordon?
Everyone I’ve met has been so welcoming, warm, and open, and I can’t wait to begin building relationships with Gordon’s amazing students, staff, and faculty!

What do you enjoy doing during your free time??
I love spending time with friends, playing sports, reading, and watching movies. Since I’m new to the area, I’m looking forward to exploring all of the new restaurants, activities, and locations that the North Shore has to offer! 

Favorite memory from College:
Most of my favorite parts of college are the more ordinary, seemingly less “special” moments like late-night conversations, movie nights, and pick-up basketball games. But one specific memory that does stand out is the challenging, yet deeply rewarding, experience I had on Wheaton’s Orientation Committee as a senior, working with our team to welcome 600 new students to campus in the middle of COVID.
