Get to Know Your Counselor

Who has had the greatest influence on your life?

The greatest influence in my life is by far, my mother. She was able to raise her only child while being a single parent and balancing college as well. She’s given so much to me and I am indebted to her. She’s my go to for advice, rebuke, and love.

What advice would you give to your incoming students?

Take advantage of every opportunity to experience Biola…appreciate the time you have in chapels, discussing and living out God’s word with other students, preparing for a missions trip, going to Disneyland, clowning around in your dorm, and experiencing the hills and valleys of studying. This is one of the most transformative times in life, so use it to the fullest, and have fun along the way.

What are you passionate about?

I am definitely passionate about church life, particularly teaching and preaching. I love the body of Christ and desire to grow with them in every way I can. I am also passionate about education. I love being challenged intellectually and being shaped to change the world in various ways through talking and reasoning.

What is your favorite college memory?

My favorite college memory is the relationships I built, studying in Hart Hall’s kitchen until 2am with others who became dear friends. We shared our love for Christ, our deepest weaknesses and longings, and a genuine love for one another. They became family, and I have become known as the one who falls asleep in the kitchen!
