Vice President for Student Life


My Role at Bethel

I serve as Vice President for Student Life. I work with a team of gifted and committed colleagues within the division of Student Life to ensure that we support and challenge growth in faith, living, and learning. We accomplish this by providing spiritual, physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and moral development to our students. Our focus is primarily on experiences outside the classroom which is in harmony with the institution's core values and mission.

Why You'd Contact Me

I love to assist students in understanding their role and involvement as Christ-followers at Bethel. I'm here to offer appropriate resources and counseling for students, and to help them navigate their spiritual, personal, educational, cross-cultural, and vocational awareness and goals.

Reasons I Love My Job

Serving students is my passion. I love working in close collaboration with faculty, staff, and administration on behalf of students to facilitate a learning and living environment. I'm energized to witness students' personal growth and their contributions to the welfare of others within and outside of the community.

In My Free Time

Spending time with family and friends, watching and cheering at sporting events, reading, and attending plays, musicals and operas are some of my favorite activities. I enjoy partnering with JENGA ministries in Uganda as well as serving on Great Oaks Camp board of directors.
