It is a privilege to work with the adult and graduate students at Belhaven University. There is no greater joy for me than to journey with each student as they progress through their program of study and to see them walk confidently across the stage to receive their diploma. As an adult learner, I experienced the struggles of balancing family, church, work, and school. At Belhaven, we understand the need for balance, and we support you so you can successfully achieve your goals.

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.
