Why I came to Taylor:

I came to Taylor to be immersed in an authentic and intentional community of believers who share the common goal of preparing students to carry a Christian worldview into a world that needs hope.

Advice to incoming students:

Be open-minded, eager to explore and learn, and get enough sleep.


I enjoy running, supporting my children’s activities (soccer, dance, gymnastics), and enjoying the outdoors.
