Random facts about me:
- Since 2008, I have had the joy and bliss of being married to my sweet love and best friend, Adam, who teaches math here at Southern. Together we relish in the blessing and adventure of parenting our two precious boys.
- I enjoy traveling, especially to beachfront locations.
- In addition to a jovial toddler and smiley infant, we have two furry children (Australian Shepherd dogs).
- Jesus is my rock and ultimate love. I am amazed each day by His love, goodness and mercy. I hope to share a view of His character to those around me.
FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT SOUTHERN ADVENTIST UNIVERSITY
- I enjoy the opportunity to connect with students and support their academic endeavors while pointing them to Christ.
- My colleagues. It's a great team and I am glad to be a part of it.
- Mountains and having four seasons. Coming from Florida, I didn't have either and missed them both.

In my past, I have had a bit of an adventure streak by sky-diving and scuba diving. It's neat to see the world from those two views!
