My Role at Bethel

As the PSEO engagement specialist, I get to be a resource for PSEO students on campus. I help create opportunities and events for PSEO students to connect and get involved in the Bethel community. I also assist in overseeing The Loft and The Underground, some of our student spaces on campus.

Reasons Why I Love My Job

I get to work with incredible students and staff! I love getting to come alongside students in their journey into college and consider it a privilege to get to do that. One of my favorite parts of my job is getting to know students and create spaces for them to discover more of who God made them to be and opportunities for them to step into their identity.

In My Free Time

A good conversation and a good cup of coffee is one of my favorite combinations. In my free time, if I'm not having coffee with a friend, you can find me baking something in my kitchen, playing games with my family and friends, or finding a new place to hike or run!

Best Bethel Tradition

It's hard to pick just one, but Welcome Week is one of my most favorite Bethel traditions! The best way I can describe it is as a week that resembles a glimpse of heaven on earth. People from all different places and walks of life come to Bethel and become a united group—a family. It's a privilege to be the hands and feet of Jesus by serving incoming students during the various Welcome Week events. There is so much genuine energy and excitement across campus, and it is a joy to watch Bethel shift from being just a university campus to becoming students' home.
