I believe in the importance of building relationships with students that promote their self-understanding and development socially, emotionally, academically, personally, and spiritually. The purpose of Higher Education is to develop future leaders through experiential learning opportunities. I value working with students as they learn lessons occurring outside of the classroom, while at the same time, helping students to bridge the gap between their in class and out of class learning. I believe that during college, students make decisions that have a lasting impact on how they view the world and interact with people around them. My hope is to help students process their experiences and choices in an effort to assist them in learning more about themselves and whom they want to be in life.


As an aspiring entity in Higher Education, our role includes empowering students to take responsibility for their choices, work well with others in society, and learn how to value the differences in people around them. In the midst of encouraging students to take responsibility for their actions and think for themselves, I want to challenge them to learn the importance of seeing other people's perspectives, even when they may not agree with them. I desire to create a safe place where students can ask questions openly and sort through the joys and struggles of being a young adult.


Most importantly, I believe in the life changes that happen within the context of relationships. I hope to walk alongside students and simply be an example and role model for them. My desire is that the students we interact with would know that they have unique gifts and talents that they can offer other people around them.
