Best residence life memory from my college days

ResLife at Moody was awesome! I was in a small group of 10 female RAs who pretty much served as my family. We were utterly ridiculous and had a blast chatting late at night, going on retreats, playing (friendly) pranks on our residents, praying together, and encouraging each other in a pursuit of holiness. Some of my favorite memories happened when we would do a yearly tradition of going on a group GYROFAD (get your roommate or friend a date) and would dress up in ridiculous outfits and go bowling or to karaoke, or roam the streets of Chicago.


Favorite way to spend a Saturday

Sleep in, meet up with friends for breakfast, thrift, explore a new place, coffee shop hop, and end it with going out to dinner and a movie.



Plans for the upcoming year

I plan to seek the Lord to the best of my ability and provide a hospitable space in Andreas where students can rest, have fun, grow in their faith, and encounter biblical community.


Favorite recreational activities

I love just hanging out with friends, reading and discussing theology, singing and playing music, doing art projects, baking, going to a classic car show, or simply watching a good movie.


What residents can expect

They can expect to be welcomed into a community that seeks to glorify God and love others well. They can expect to experience hospitality and a genuine desire to grow as the body of Christ through mentoring and discipleship, community events, and authentic relationships.


Best thing about my job

I love academia and getting to walk alongside students as they go through this transformational experience called college. I enjoy getting to be a part of students' lives as they grow more deeply in their relationship with God and image him more profoundly. I love being a learner among learners, attending and discussing lectures, going to college events and getting to encourage, support, and challenge students as they learn how to live out their faith more fully. I relish getting to practice hospitality and open my space for students to relax, eat good food, grow in community, and experience the gospel enacted.

Favorite Class

That's hard. It's probably a tie between American Lit 1865-1965, and Theory of Community Development.


What residents can expect

Even while living away from halls and campus life, there will be space for hanging out and living life together. This year, the apartments can create a place where four people in a small apartment can practice loving each other in the big challenges and the small facets of life.


What I'm all about

Learning how to follow God and honor him, through adventures, music, art, work, and relationships.



“Covenant’s hall life allows you to be involved in something that is bigger than yourself. You will never have an opportunity to live with 30 guys your age and share your life, struggles, and joys together. It’s a beautiful thing that reflects God’s work in our lives.”

“I love, love, love my hall! I met these girls my first week of school and each of them have had a continuing impact on my life in various ways throughout this year. My particular hall this year had a really cool range of ages and majors... This group of girls (most of them returners to the hall) have welcomed me in since day one and have made me feel so loved and included.”
