Get to Know Your Counselor

Who has had the greatest influence on your life?

Definitely my family! They have shown me what unconditional love looks like, pushed me to be the best version of myself and shown me how to be a witness for Christ through kindness and consistency. I’m so grateful for their love and support!

What was the greatest lesson you learned in college?

That comparison steals contentment. God has a unique plan for each of us and we lose our own joy and contentment when we compare what we are experiencing to those around us. In college it's easy to measure yourself against your peers when it comes to grades, social life, relationship status etc…but true joy comes when we focus our eyes on, not those around us, but our Lord who is leading and guiding us every day!

What is your favorite place on campus? Why?

I love Fluer Fountain! SoCal weather is the BEST so it’s a great place to do homework, hang out with friends, read the Bible or watch the sunset!

Where do you hang out in Los Angeles?

The Griffith Observatory at night is amazing! I also love going to museums like The Getty or the Broad and then going to a fun place to get coffee or eat after like Urth Cafe or Grand Central Market.
