I am so blessed to work at Belhaven University! It is amazing to be a part of preparing adult students for a successful career and at the same time enabling them to grow spiritually. I know it is hard for an adult to decide to go back to college. I know the struggles because I started my college later in life. God knows our struggles too. I believe each day I am given that I am to encourage and minister to all those I come in contact with. God placed me here for a reason and I want to glorify His name every day by serving our students, faculty and staff.

Isaiah 40:31 - Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.

I am so thankful for Belhaven! The word of God was poured over me and I learned to think critically about all of reality during my studies at Belhaven University, and God used the instruction received as well as the relationships formed here to give me more of a heart to serve Christ and His Kingdom. I love to teach the Bible here at Belhaven and to see students transformed by Christ and equipped for His calling on their lives. Soli Deo Gloria!

Working with adult students is an honor and a privilege for me.  God has a plan for your life and we look forward to the opportunity of being a part of your journey as you pursue your educational goals.  One of my favorite events at Belhaven is our graduation ceremony.  It is so rewarding to see our students through the process from the initial application to the day we get to celebrate their accomplishments at graduation!

Our students are adults who are most often juggling family, work and education. The struggle is part of the story and I am learning more and more everyday there are many twists and turns in life and we have to simply trust and rest in Him. I think the thing I love the most about working at Belhaven is being able to invest in people and get to know them on a personal level. It is my joy to help serve you in your process. It is so rewarding to watch you as you move forward and further your educational journey.

It is my desire to help people as much as I can and Belhaven has afforded me the opportunity to perform in this capacity while helping others during their educational journey. I truly believe in the mission of Belhaven; "the Lordship of God over all aspects of our lives" and this includes college education. As a life-long learner, I have always believed that there are lessons in everything that happens to us in life, and I try to find the lessons that God sends me every day. Since beginning my job at Belhaven I have had the great pleasure of meeting so many wonderful people who encourage me in my Christian walk.

Philippians 2:1-2 - So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.
