My life's mission is to love the Great Commandment of Matthew 22 and live the Great
Commission of Matthew 28. As a part of the Admissions team here at Ouachita, I get
to help build a Christ-centered learning community that prepares individuals for ongoing
intellectual and spiritual growth, lives of meaningful work, and reasoned engagement
with the world.
Favorite Ouachita memory
My favorite Ouachita memory happened my sophomore year on a snow day. I saw the weather
forecast calling for lots of snow and afternoon classes were cancelled. My friend
Drew and I caught a ride home with my dad who teaches here at OBU, and we brought
our Polaris side-by-side back across town on backroads through the snow so we could
pull our friends around the lower intramural fields on an inner-tube. It was awesome.
What do you wish students knew about Ouachita?
I wish students knew that graduating from Ouachita gives them such an advantage in
the next stage of life. Whether they're going into graduate school or starting their
first job, they'll be well prepared and connected to others in their field.
What is your favorite study spot on campus and why?
My favorite study spot on campus is the first floor corner table of the library in
the reference section. It's a prime study spot because you're right next to tons of
literary sources and the cafeteria is just a few steps away when you need a snack!
What do you like most about working with students?
What I enjoy most about working with students is having genuine conversations that
help them move forward. They may be in the initial steps of applying, trying to piece
together financial aid, wrapping up a campus tour, or chasing down a scholarship they
really want, but getting to link arms with students and families to help them get
where they need to be is a rewarding task.
