Favorite Verse: "Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses." – 1 Timothy 6:12 (ESV)

Hobbies: My favorite hobbies involve water. I love to swim, kayak, paddle board, or even just set up a hammock by one of the many lakes found in the Rocky Mountains. When I’m not in the water I’m usually enjoying some tea with friends, playing soccer, or watching movies!

Before I came to CCU: I originally came to CCU as a student athlete on the women’s soccer team. I enjoyed being a Division II athlete, but CCU provided so many other opportunities for me to challenge myself and grow spiritually. I had the privilege of being an RA, a Discipleship Advisor, and the Student Producer of CCUTV. The latter helped me to develop my passion for filmmaking and storytelling. My passion is facilitating a story through its completion. CCU offers every student so many opportunities to build their faith through truth and grace and I am so thankful to be able to share some my personal experiences of that with perspective students!
