Hometown: Ashland, Ky.
Degree(s): B.A. in Youth Ministry, Asbury University
Why do I love Asbury? When I was a student at Asbury I was pushed to pursue experiences that I never would have on my own, experiences that had profound impact on the person that I am today. I had no plans to look for leadership positions on campus, but I ended up being a class chaplain my sophomore year because other students challenged me to do it, becoming a Resident Assistant my junior year because the Residence Director saw something in me that I didn’t see in myself, and becoming the Assistant Residence Director my senior year because I had finally gained enough self-confidence to believe that I could be a leader. I will always be thankful for the many people at Asbury that were intentionally invested in my life and how those relationships positively transformed the way that I see myself and the world around me.
What is my favorite place on campus? I really enjoy the hiking trails that go down to the Kentucky River. It’s amazing to be able to be surrounded by nature, see the beautiful streams and small waterfalls, and still be on campus.
What skill would I want to have if I could be good at it without practice? I have traveled to Italy a couple of times, and I plan on going back in the future. I would love to be able to speak Italian without having to take the time to learn it.
