My Role at Bethel

I provide strategic leadership and decision making for Residence Life. I offer students academic support, emotional support, and support to navigate the overall challenges of college.

Best Thing About My Job

I love pushing the Residence Life team to be better. Our long-term goal is for Bethel to feel like a home for all students from a variety of backgrounds, and my role allows me to think bigger about how to accomplish that goal. Lastly, I love supporting resident directors as they get to know students.

Number One Reason to Live on Campus

Because there’s nothing quite like it. You have the opportunity to learn, be challenged, and grow alongside others in a way that you probably have never experienced before. I truly believe that you can be transformed by your experience in the residence halls and that you can walk away a better person because of it.

Favorite Bethel Tradition

Welcome Week and opening night in the first-year halls! It’s probably the highest amount of energy you’ll experience at Bethel and there’s nothing like welcoming all of our first-year students in such a fun, exciting, and unique way!
