Why are you working for Fox as the Director of Commuter Life? Great question, I’m glad you asked! I love working with college students to help them feel connected with others and supported in their academic journey. College is such a transformational time and it is important to have people around you supporting you along the way. My ultimate desire is for God to use my skills and gifts to serve students here at Fox. If you are a commuter, I am excited to get to know you and journey this this year with you.

Favorite Scripture: Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. Romans 8:1-2
