About Me

I'm originally from central New York. After college, I found myself returning to academic work while also working in various roles in Student Development during my graduate school years. This integration has been an important component of my work during my time at Mary. While my primary role is on the faculty, I work closely with Student Development. This allows me to ask questions about both the academic experience and the student life experience, bridging these two worlds for those who work here and those who learn here.

Why I’m At Mary

I love being a part of a community that's asking questions about how we encounter truth and the person of Truth, in our study, our prayer, and our lives.
