How did you come to work at 24:7?

I hadn't ever really considered working in ministry before, but I went to 24:7 for 3 years in college and really loved the community. In my senior year, almost every staff member at the time came up to me individually and asked if I had considered joining staff when I graduated. Lots of pros/cons lists and thoughtful prayer later, here I am!


What can instantly make your day better?

A good song, cat cuddles, or some Empress tea


Who's one person (dead or alive) you'd want to spend an uninterrupted hour of time with and what would you do?

Audrey Hepburn FOR SURE, I'd just want to drink tea and bake a pie together. She lived such an interesting life and I’d want to ask about all of it.


How is Jesus growing you in faith right now?

I've always struggled with seeing how God's character is the same in the Old Testament as it in the New Testament, but lately he's really given me a love for theology/doctrine and time in Leviticus. It's been so cool learning and seeing how the Bible is one big story instead of two kind of connected ones.


What's your favorite part of working with college students?

College ministry has such a wide variety of people with different experiences and backgrounds. Watching how completely different people grow into one Christian community is one of the best experiences. Plus, I love that I can say the weirdest things and at least one person usually understands me.


Is there anything else you'd like to add?

If you ever want to meet a really cute cat, hit me up. I love inviting people into my home:)
