Degree: B.S. in Political Science, Iowa State University; M.Div., Bethel Seminary (in progress)
Hometown: Rudd, Iowa
My favorite things about Bethel Seminary: I am so grateful for the encouragement and support I've found in the Bethel community. Both in and out of class, I am surrounded by people who are genuinely seeking to grow as individuals and in their ministry. Additionally, I appreciate Bethel's commitment to prepare "whole and holy" leaders, and I'm excited to continue to be shaped and challenged by my courses and my community.
My favorite Twin Cities/Minnesota sites: I am always finding new places to visit in the Twin Cities. I live in South Minneapolis, and there are great restaurants and coffee shops right around where I live.
Before working at Bethel: After earning my degree at Iowa State, I served as a mission volunteer in the Philippines, worked on a few campaigns, nonprofits, and a local church. I've been blessed to work with immigrants, low-wage workers, and many other amazing people in our community.
