I spent a large portion of my life in New Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, with my family. Being that it was a very small town, I decided to leave PA and pursue an education at Anderson University in Anderson, Indiana. While it was difficult being away from home and trying to live on my own as a very awkward freshman (I'm sure this is relatable), I now look back fondly on my college experience and the ways I have grown as a person thanks to the grace of God. Even today, I am constantly learning to trust God to have control over my life and the things that consume my thoughts. I've also learned to have a great sense of humor, as it provides a whole new perspective to our daily lives and the interactions we have with others.
I was drawn to Taylor's reputation as a Christian institution, and the opportunities it provides students. As I've worked here as a graduate assistant while taking courses as a part of the MAHE program, I've had the pleasure of working with upperclassmen students who are nearing the end of their studies. Watching them in this season of their lives as they consider the next steps for their professional careers and personal lives has been very eye-opening. Serving students and spending time with them during this important phase of life is a rewarding experience that I will take with me for the rest of my career.
When I'm not studying or working, you will find me playing games, watching movies or awful TV shows, or spending time with family and friends. I enjoy any opportunity to meet students, and I am looking forward to spending my second year here at Taylor pursuing God while also serving the community around me.
