How did you end up at Westmont? I have been interested in working at Westmont since I first visited its beautiful campus in 2005. Several of my friends currently work at Westmont and speak highly of their experiences, so as I was looking for opportunities to work in higher education on the West Coast, I was excited to see that Westmont had an RD opening! I am grateful God opened the door for my husband and me to come.

Favorite thing about Westmont? I appreciate Westmont’s commitment to transformation in the lives of students and I look forward to being a part of this community!

What makes you laugh? My husband (Brad); lip syncing and singing karaoke; watching Jimmy Fallon.

Favorite book(s) in your library?The Return of the Prodigal Son by Henri Nouwen, The Hawk and the Dove by Penelope Wilcock, Emotionally Healthy Spirituality by Peter Scazerro, The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling.

What states and/or countries have you lived in and for how long? New York (18 years); Argentina (one semester); Illinois (7 years); Wisconsin (4 years); Hawaii (3 months); Australia (1 month); Minnesota (3 years).

Where is a place that you like to vacation? My husband and I love road trips to visit our friends and family all around the country. We dream about visiting Alaska, and going on a Mediterranean cruise.
