My favorite things about Bethel University

Bethel is a place that genuinely wants to see students succeed, something I have experienced firsthand both as a student and a staff member. I am particularly impressed with the quality of education our students receive and the value that is placed on growing the whole person. Bethel allows students an abundance of opportunity to be filled up in mind, body and spirit, but I'm especially partial to the concerts and special speakers that are on campus throughout the year.

My favorite things about the Twin Cities and life

The Twin Cities are filled with innovators.  We are the headquarters for global and national industries, we have excellent schools and park systems, and we have passionate non-profits and churches who are making a difference in Minnesota and beyond.  I'm proud to raise my family here and to live in such a vibrant community.

My favorite thing about being a Student Success Advisor

It's an honor to partner with students as they pursue a degree so their experience as a Bethel student can be one that enhances rather than complicates life.  The highlight of my day is when I hear from a student that something we were working on together made a difference.  And of course, watching a student graduate after years of hard work....well, it doesn't get better than that!

Before working at Bethel

I am a musician, mom and former elementary music teacher who has spent many years serving prospective students as they consider enrolling at Bethel.
