Role in office? Director of Campus Life, overseeing professional staff, First Year Programs, Student Organizations and Leadership Development

Favorite thing about Westmont? Besides the DC food, I appreciate that this is a place where students live out loud seeking creative fun, passionately pursuing their dreams to change the world, and striving for a closer relationship with Christ.

Favorite college memory? There are two. First, traveling to Europe on an academic Mayterm learning program with Dr. Spencer and Dr. Taylor. Second, winning a national championship in Miami with the Westmont women's soccer team.

Favorite book(s) in your library: My favorite book currently is Tatoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion by Father Greg Boyle of Homeboy Industries. It puts things into perspective and reminds me of our call to extend the boundaries of God's love in every direction.

What is your favorite thing to do away from Westmont? Without a doubt, spending time with my hubby Brian and my two kids, Luke and Maya. There's adventure around every corner.

What is a place that you like to vacation? The Adirondacks in New York, where my husband's family has a camp on a lake. The smell of the woods in the summer can't be beat. Swimming in the lake isn't so bad, either.
