Campus Ministry Staff
Hi there! I grew up Highlands Ranch, Colorado and then attended Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa - Go Duhawks!! In college, I was actively involved in Campus Ministry, serving on our leadership team, and co-leader of our annual retreat. It was during this time I felt the Lord calling me to ministry, so I chose to continue my education through the Notre Dame Echo Program where I earned my master’s degree in theology. My latest adventure before returning to the great midwest was as a campus minister at Elon University where I learned to love walking with college students, parmesan truffle fries, and comfort color t-shirts.
Outside of ministry I enjoy anything outdoors, wearing my chacos, doggos, reading, dinosaurs, and making nerdy theology jokes.
Please feel free to drop by my office in the Blue House and say hello!
