What is the best part about your on-campus community?
The community in Texana House is vibrant with Baylor spirit! We are one of the closest communities to McLane Stadium, and it is really exciting to be so engaged in game day festivities. Our community is also composed of predominantly freshmen females, so it is a special opportunity to see and experience residents' journeys through their first year on that good ole' Baylor line.
What does authentic Christian community mean to you?
I recall meeting a faculty member when I first interviewed at Baylor who declared, “Our vision for this program is to create professionals who are a redemptive and creative influence on students, who contribute to student flourishing.” This ethos encapsulates what Christian community is to me: a community that seeks wholeness in everything, that seeks to establish the kingdom and heart of God on earth.
What is your favorite part about being an RHD, Resident Chaplain, or FIR?
The Hall Director position is such a relational position, and I love the opportunity to have a career in student development. It is remarkably rewarding to see students overcome obstacles, realize their strengths, and grow in their faith, relationships, and vocational goals. I enjoy being a facet of each student’s journey, and helping shape their college experience and holistic development. My undergrad supervisors and mentors poured such wisdom, time, and care into my life, and I look forward to stewarding on that same care and encouragement!
