My Role at Bethel

I primarily support students of color by providing relationship-building and leadership development experiences and serving as a resource for college success. I also help students explore both the role and impact of race, culture, and ethnicity on their lives and the world in which we live.

Why You'd Contact Me

Give me a call or send an email to:

  • Explore issues specifically related to race, culture, and ethnicity
  • Get prayer support or encouragement
  • Advocate for the needs of students
  • Get connected with campus resources
  • Hang out with someone who loves food, people, or Jesus

Reasons I Love My Job

I love my job because I have the chance to create a safe place for students where they can be transparent. As an undergrad I attended a state school where many people discredited Christianity because of the racial and cultural disunity in the body of Christ. I love my job because I have the opportunity to encourage the Bethel community toward unity, Christian love, and ultimately, a credible witness.

In My Free Time

When I'm not at Bethel, you'll find me taking walks, reading, playing violin, cooking, watching good movies, or playing board and card games.

Best Bethel Tradition

The Christmas festivities are awesome. The bazaar in the Underground, Festival of Christmas, and everything surrounding the event are beautiful and really helps to create an environment for thoughtful reflection during the season.
