  • Spending time with my family
  • Growing in spiritual discipline
  • I loved spending time with my rescued Golden Retrievers, Elliott and Sable, I lost both of them this year. Working towards rescuing another Golden soon. 
  • I love sports, college football and basketball (Buckeye fan), Cincinnati Reds, and watching my nephews on the football and track teams at Centerville High School and now as they begin their freshman year at Ohio University
  • Why I'm at Cedarville: My niece and her husband graduated from the nursing program at Cedarville six years ago, which is when I first spent time on campus. It was freeing to be on a campus that celebrated the Gospel and that was rooted in the Word of God. I met some of the faculty in the School of Nursing during that time and at regional conferences. I believe God has led me to Cedarville to share my passion for nursing and the Lord with the students and to be surrounded by other Christians who will encourage me in my spiritual development.
