Word or Phrase that Describes Me


Get to Know Your Counselor

Who has had the greatest influence on your life?

My husband, John, has had the greatest influence on my life. He’s taught me how to truly follow and serve the Lord, and encourages me to accomplish things beyond my wildest imagination.

What was the greatest lesson you learned in college?

I learned to wait on God’s timing, that it’s okay to say no to things, to try new things out of my comfort zone, and to take time for myself. God was so evident in my time in college. I learned who I was, made new lifelong friendships, and learned to love the artistic side of me - and I wouldn’t change the lessons I learned for the world!

What is your favorite place on campus? Why?

The top of the Jesus Saves parking structure at sunset. I’ve seen some of the best sunsets here!

Where do you hang out in Los Angeles?

You can typically find me in Old Town Pasadena or at the Palos Verdes Cliffs. If you haven’t been to either, trust me, it is worth the trip. And it’s not far from Biola!
