Why I came to Taylor:

I came to Taylor through God's guidance, as I kept feeling Him nudging me to move into a Christian teaching/learning environment. I am so excited to be here, teaching and building relationships with students and coworkers, while I am continually learning and growing!

Advice to incoming students:

Embrace all the opportunities and experiences you can, as the time will go by quickly! Participate in activities that are new to you so you can learn more about yourself, your strengths, and your interests.


I enjoy various activities such as spending time with friends and family, fellowship, volunteering my time with church activities, continually learning how to become a better disciple for God, making jewelry, state fairs, any card game, board games, cooking, and baking. I also enjoy just about anything outdoors, such as walking, running, gardening, ultimate Frisbee, and golfing.
