Welcome to my bio webpage! It's an honor to serve the Evangel University community. When I arrived on campus in the fall of 2007, I had no idea how quickly and completely I would fall in love with Evangel. This is a place where God is at work, connecting our students with their callings and equipping them to serve Him under the mentorship of a dynamic faculty and staff. I hope you'll feel free to come by or send me an email. I look forward to meeting you!
