What brought you to Gordon?
As I anticipated finishing my master’s degree this spring, I began to consider where I could serve. I had completed my graduate internship in a counseling center at a nearby college and it was there that the Lord solidified my love for college students and my passion for the unique season of life that they are in. As I explored the role of a Residence Director, I realized how much it combined my love for discipleship, counseling and meaningful community. My husband, Hunter, and I love this area and are so grateful to be part of the Gordon family!
What is your favorite part about working in Residence Life?
Is it too cliché to say the people? I absolutely love getting to know what makes each person unique and then finding ways to build bridges between people. I feel so privileged that part of my job is to witness and participate in the Lord’s work in student’s lives!
What is your favorite thing about Gordon?
Location, location, location! I love that we’re a short drive from the ocean and the mountains, we get to take advantage of all four seasons and there are so many beautiful and historic places to explore.
What do you enjoy doing during your free time?
Hunter and I love being part of our gym community in nearby Beverly! We’ve met so many wonderful people that make the pain and sweating worth it ;) I also love playing the piano, writing music and this summer I taught myself to crochet (thanks, Youtube!).
Favorite memory from College:
Truth be told, I was a major choir nerd. I was in three different chorales and loved every second: the performances, the slap-happy rehearsals and the pieces that seemed impossible at first that became some of my favorites! There is something so inexpressibly beautiful about creating sound with a group of people… I like to think that it’s a glimpse of what heaven will be like.
What is your favorite hall event?
I love the beginning of the year when I get to host dessert night at our apartment. It’s such a great way to welcome students to their new home, get to know their faces and stories and of course, eat some ice cream and cookies.
