I am six feet tall, have naturally red hair and apparently “my colors” are maroon and gold. You see, I grew up in Texas, but moved to Missouri for four years while I got my bachelor’s degree at the #1 journalism school in the country. But after about three years at Mizzou (gold), I decided I missed Texas and loved freshmen too much to keep going down the path to the world of media, so I decided to come home and pursue a master’s degree in Student Affairs Administration in Higher Education at Texas A&M (maroon). Upon graduation from A&M, I began my first job as an academic advisor at Texas State University (maroon & gold!). After working in the PACE Advising Center for two years, I moved over to the McCoy College of Business Advising Center in the summer of 2015.
I love Jesus and spend a lot of my time trying to figure out how to follow him. I adore campus ministry and have had the opportunity to serve at three Collegiate churches: The Rock at Mizzou, Fellowship Church at Texas A&M, and now 2.42 Church at Texas State.
The Lord overwhelmed all my dreams and expectations and blessed me with an amazing, God-loving husband who also happens to be 6’6″! We went on my first date (ever at all) in August 2012, when I was 23 years old, and we’ve been married since July 2014.
I am the oldest of four kids. I like to read and cook. I love babies and have a heart for orphans and adoption. I am a Hermione Granger when it comes to grammar, but I think I’m really a Hufflepuff rather than a Gryffindor. I’m a cat person, and
I like lists, calendars, diagrams and color-coding things. I have a viola named Elfaba, and I started playing in orchestras when I was 10. I recently joined a community orchestra, and I also serve as a worship team member at our church on viola, guitar, and vocals. I have seen entirely too many musicals and often burst into spontaneous song. My parents and siblings are legit, and I am incredibly thankful for them. My friends are awesome, and I can always count on them. My birthday is March 21, or 321. I like that about it.
And that’s a little about me.
