Favorite Bushnell Memory:

Numerous baptisms of students in the Willamette River near Bushnell. Working with the amazing students/faculty/staff who tirelessly serve to end sex trafficking in Cambodia.

Best Part of My Job:

Hearing each student’s story and getting to be a part of their discovering God’s unique and unfolding call on their life. I am also very humbled to be a part of both Student Development and the Faculty at Bushnell. Truly blessed.

Favorite Hangout Spot in Eugene:

North Bank McMenamins…Cajun tots!

Tips for College Success:

Go to class and take notes. In most courses, you can get at least half of what you need to succeed by doing those two simple things. Attention and retention.

Favorite Bible Verse:

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but as an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12
