My favorite things about Bethel University

My favorite thing about Bethel University is that every day I am excited to be here! I get to rub shoulders with students, faculty, staff, and coaches who love Jesus, love one another, and expect big things from one another in all walks of life. The community is a family who laughs, fights, and loves with acceptance and expectation. I get to be a part of a culture that is defined by excellence—in and outside the classroom—and that decidedly follows Jesus; it's something special that cannot be replicated. Oh, and I love Bethel football!

My favorite places on Bethel's campus

My favorite places at Bethel are the Brushaber Commons, the path along the lake, the seminary, and Royal Stadium.

My favorite Twin Cities/Minnesota sites

I enjoy Target Field, the Cheese Curd Stand at the Minnesota State Fair, St. Anthony Main Street, and any lake.

Before working at Bethel

I worked as a special education paraprofessional, high school volleyball coach, and as a behavior therapist at a clinic for kids with autism.
