Hometown: Senath, Missouri
Degree: B.A. in Biblical Studies; Philosophy Minor
Hobbies: I am interested and entertained by many things—writing, singing, dancing, running, being outdoors—but above all I am a “people person.” Spending quality time with those I love, as well as meeting new people, is very life-giving to me.

What do you do in the Office of Admission?
I have the privilege of working with prospective students and their families, walking with them through the decision process of preparing for college. I communicate with them in many different ways and I get to introduce them to the incredible people, place, and purpose that comprise and define Belhaven University.

What is your perception of academic quality at Belhaven University?
Belhaven offers a quality education with an array of diverse opportunities. Rooted in a rich history of liberal arts and humanities, Belhaven is the ideal place for students who thrive in a classical education setting, desiring to be intellectually challenged and to hone critical thinking skills, communication, and argument development (for example, our Honors College, Omega College, English and Philosophy departments). Ever-aware of the need to be broadly relevant, Belhaven also invests in developing more vocational degree tracks that are practical for students who are more inclined to use college time to prepare for the marketplace (for example, our Business, Science, and Nursing programs).

What do you like most about Belhaven?
The thing I treasure most about BU, both as an alum and now as an employee, is the thorough commitment to the Lordship of Christ Jesus. This is a “game changer,” setting the tone for all interactions on campus. Because Jesus is Lord at Belhaven, truth and genuine sacrificial care are consistently honored and experienced everywhere. At Belhaven, you can be confident that because the standard really is Christ, you will be greeted by the peace, love, and joy of the Lord.

What is your favorite place on campus? Why?
I have countless favorite places! But to narrow it down, I would have to say that the Wynn Kenyon Think Center is my favorite; it was my “home away from home” during the four years that I lived on campus. The Think Center is a great place to study and to fellowship with friends. I learned a lot there, had many stimulating conversations, and made lots of fun, lasting memories.

What advice would you give to your incoming students?
Invest in all of the incredible people who surround you. All of the faculty and staff, as well as campus ministries, truly are here to serve and love you. It is worth stepping out of your comfort zone and making yourself vulnerable by being honest with these dear folks who are ready to pour into you with truth and grace. If you let them speak into your life, you will never be the same, and you’ll be a kinder, wiser, and happier person because of it.
