I was born and raised in Seattle, fully equipped with a plan to never leave. I stuck closely with my plan and followed my love of pine trees to Spokane, where I attended a small liberal arts school for a year and a half, before transferring to The Master’s University. The summer between my freshman and sophomore year of college, I worked at a summer camp high in the Cascade mountains, where I came to know Jesus Christ as my savior. Soon after, the Lord led me out of my home state to sunny California—which despite my objections, ended up being one of the sweetest gifts the Lord has given to me.
I graduated from The Master’s University in May of 2016 with a B.A. in Biblical Studies, and was offered the opportunity to serve as an admissions counselor the day I walked across the stage, and couldn’t say no! Now I get to tell other Pacific Northwesterners why it’s worth it to leave the rainy states for a few years in California, in return for a world class Bible education and the sweetest community you can find.
Other things about me? I love camp, I love pine trees, I love coffee, I love travel. But mostly, I love learning daily how to conform to the likeness of my Savior by his unending and undeserved grace.
“But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness” (Psalm 86:15), which is originally said by God in Exodus 34:6-7, when the Lord is proclaiming himself before Moses on Mount Sinai. He is making himself known to his people by telling them of His unchanging character. His character is trustworthy, He does not change—abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. What a comfort!
My four years in college shaped me dramatically. I was saved while working at a camp after my freshman year in college, which has been the most significant mark of change in my life! My time at Master’s refined by love for Jesus Christ and the Word, which has been fostered in the classrooms, in chapel, and especially in the dorms. The relationships that I formed at Master’s shaped my personhood greatly, as I walked along my sisters and brothers toward Christlikeness.
My friends and I used to love having picnics on the library lawn. Often got made fun of for it—but worth it.
If given an opportunity (and endless money), I would travel. This last year, I was able to explore ten countries, and would do it again tomorrow if given the opportunity. While not traveling? I love finding local spots (bookstores, coffee shops, ) with friends
Kathleen Murray’s “Woodland Voices” on repeat!
I love a good Americano (with sugar, I cheat) in the morning, but if I have the opportunity? A vanilla latte from Copa Vida will make my week.

I loved Dr. Behle, specifically his Christian Worldview class. His philosophy on Christian education shaped me profoundly, I took as many classes of his as I could.
