I am originally from Michigan, where I graduated from Calvin College and Seminary with a degree in English and a Masters in Divinity. Upon graduating, I sensed God moving me to Philadelphia, where I was introduced to the HPCA community. Since moving, I have loved every moment! As a Bible teacher, it is my hope that students not just gain knowledge about the Bible, but that they come to know Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit whose great love for us compels us to love our neighbor. As a chaplain, I seek to care for the emotional and spiritual needs of our students in a holistic way. As a regular human outside of school, I may be found working on an art project, baking donuts, or occasionally breaking it down on the dance floor.
