My favorite things about Bethel University

The people, first and foremost, are my favorite thing about Bethel. I love Chapel, especially when President Jay Barnes is speaking. I enjoy walking around the beautiful campus. I love campus in the spring when the trees are in full bloom and everybody is outside as much as possible. I like the walk up to the football stadium before a game—you can feel the excitement in the air.

My favorite places on Bethel's campus

I love to sit in the upper balcony of Benson Great Hall. It makes me feel closer to God.

My favorite Twin Cities/Minnesota sites

Moving back from the West Coast, I have fallen in love again with so many things and places in Minnesota. I am obsessed with the lakes. I love all the arts and cultures that are represented in the Twin Cities. I love sitting on my porch with friends. I also enjoy, regardless of the time of year, going to a cabin to slow down, relax, and enjoy the nature Minnesota has to offer.

Before working at Bethel

I worked in recruiting for Koch Trucking in Minneapolis and at a children's shelter in Oceanside, California.
