Hobbies: reading everything in reach, searching endlessly for the perfect antique treasure, lazy lake days, singing, drive-in movies with my family, and consuming as many  pancakes as possible. 

Favorite ONU class and why: “Preparing your Call to Ministry” (fall ’11) with Jason Robertson 

At a really crucial point in my life, Prof Robertson deconstructed my idea of a “calling” and Biblically rebuilt my views, ideals, and really, my soul’s desire to be in the ministry.  

Favorite ONU professor: While the entire English department has significantly invested in me in some way, Rebecca Belcher-Rankin believed in my writing and spurred me toward excellence when I had no courage to lift the pen. In addition, her guidance and model of a lovely Christ-like woman impacted me greatly.

Favorite college trip: Burkina Faso, Africa, Summer 2010

Favorite ONU hangout and why: The Red Square. It’s sunny/right next to the Tiger Den (favorite place to eat), of course!

Advice for new ONU students:  
“College is only as hard as learning to manage your time. Be a good steward of every minute, and the time spent here will be more than worthwhile!”




Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
