Admissions job (in your own words): I meet with transfer students to provide them with what they need as they look to transfer to a university. Through fairs at community colleges, campus visits, coffee appointments, and tons of emails, I serve as the first stop for students in their journey of potentially becoming a SPU Falcon. If I don’t have the right information or answer they need, I connect students with the right departments and people to get the help they need.
Hometown: Mesa, Arizona
Education: Biola University in Los Angeles (B.A. in Biblical Studies and Theology, M.A. in Preaching and Pastoral Ministry, and an M.A. in Pastoral Care and Counseling)
Favorite Seattle restaurant: I am fairly new to the city, but there’s an Italian restaurant in North Seattle called Cornuto that is delicious!
A trip I’d like to take: I’d like to visit Israel and travel through all of the historical sites.
Family: I have two parents, two siblings, three nephews, and one niece all still living in Arizona!

Favorite thing about SPU: I really enjoy the beautiful campus and how close SPU is to so many incredible things in Seattle!
Advice for high school/transfer students: The thing you might remember most from your times in high school and college will probably be the people. Invest in those and you will have great memories!

Graduation year: 2018 (undergraduate), 2019 (graduate)

Hobbies & fun facts: I enjoy most team sports, specifically basketball and flag football! However, I have recently developed a deep love of spikeball. I also love video games and love being so close to Microsoft!
A fun fact about me is that I once ate 25 pizzas in 22 days while I traveled from the top of Italy to the bottom. It was delicious and wholesome and good. I actually lost five pounds while I was there too.
