I guess my time at Baylor just wasn't finished after all :) I loved working at Spiritual Life while I was in graduate school and i'm even more excited about my NEW job as the Coordinator for Missions!

What is your favorite part of working at Baylor?
Besides access to the Baylor Marina so i can go kayaking anytime i want?
I love the people...they're my Waco family! I moved to Texas not knowing anyone and now I cannot imagine a place where i have better community than in my own office.

I love seeing lightbulbs go off for students as they make connections & grow. I want to help students think outside the box and see how they can use their talents and passions to make the world a better place.

The Help: I loved the book & the movie was just as great.
