Favorite thing about Baylor/why I choose to work here:

My favorite thing about Baylor is the Christian commitment and positive environment. From the moment I stepped foot on campus, I knew my purpose was to serve in higher education, and that God was going to provide a way for me to return to serve this environment one day.


During my spare time, I like to cook, travel, volunteer, and work out. I enjoy spending time with my husband Sammy, my step-kids (3 boys), our adopted (saved and loved) dog, Gilbert, family, and friends. My husband and I are members of Highland Baptist Church in Waco. I am in The LeadershipPLENTY® Institute Waco – Round 10 season, am an ambassador of the Greater Hewitt Chamber of Commerce and am always looking for ways to serve my community.

Favorite Bible scripture:

Philippians 4:13, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
