Residence Hall Director - Baylor Cityside

What is your favorite part about being a Residence Hall Director?

My favorite part about being a hall director is watching and assisting student growth. Every May, it is my honor to watch residents leave the hall with a greater sense of confidence, autonomy, interdependence, and passion for whatever they decide to pursue next.

What does authentic Christian community mean to you?

To me, authentic Christian community is rooted in the theology of imago dei, which asserts that each person has inherent worth and goodness, not because they have assimilated to certain expectations or earned it through a performance of behaviors, but as an intrinsic side effect of being created in God’s image. This not only means that each community member must be treated with dignity and love, but also that each person is created for community and connection.
