B.A. in Christian Formation and Ministry, Minor in English, Wheaton College, IL

Orlando, FL

What brought you to Gordon?
My family and I felt God opening the door for us to live and work at Gordon despite being comfortable in our old workplaces and home. We both attended Wheaton College and had foundational times there that shaped us as believers. Now, we hope God can use us to be a part of shaping students during an integral time in their lives.

What is your favorite part about working in Residence Life? 
I'm excited to do different parts of life with students whether that be sharing meals together or praying for them. It's a unique opportunity to get to know and support students on their own turf.

What is your favorite thing about Gordon?
I love that Gordon wants to help students become independent thinkers and devoted followers of Christ so they can thrive both during college and post-college.

What do you enjoy doing during your free time?
You can usually find me with my one-year-old daughter, thrifting, or sharing meals with my family and friends (with some good music playing).

Favorite memory from College:
My favorite memory was interning for Samaritan's Purse in Boone, NC during the summer after my junior year. I was able to live among 30 other 20-something believers, hike most days of the week, and travel to Singapore for a conference.
