I love making homemade bread and taking my dog, Yogi, on walks. I also love theatre! I have been on stage in 17 productions and worked on even more.

Why Cedarville?

The students, staff, and faculty truly resemble Christ's love in everything they do. As a result, the community of Cedarville is unmatched in its love, care, and support for one another. It is such a blessing to be a part of such an incredible community.
