Ministry setting

M.Div. Student at Harvard Divinity School

What brings you joy in your ministry?

Nothing brings me more joy then being with community and building relationships with others. As a lifelong learner, I constantly find myself learning from others in a variety of settings, which has brought me much joy over the years.

Who inspires you in ministry or seminary?

Far too many to name! Those I have learned from and grown with over the years from The Bridge, but also those I learn and grow with from afar- even if that means watching and wrestling with questions through Facebook!

What are your interests outside of ministry?

I love anything outdoors; backpacking, hiking, climbing. My perfect Saturday involves brunch at a hole-in-the-wall diner and hiking with my partner and dog somewhere in the mountains.

Best meal you've ever eaten?

Nothing beats a slice of pizza and Ale8 from Miguel's (in Kentucky) after spending a few days in the woods!
