Why Cedarville?

I truly believe that God led me into full-time teaching. I was praying over the last few years for an opportunity to combine medicine with a ministry for Jesus. I have a real passion for investing in students' lives and am so grateful to be a part of helping to fulfill God's purposes at Cedarville University. I believe that when you are serving where God wants you to be, then you are in the right place! I will follow Him wherever He leads me!
