What were your favorite ENC activities?
I loved being a part of ENC’s Gospel Choir! This group of students loves to worship and share God’s joy, and during my years as a student they became my extended family. I also had the chance to be a Resident Assistant for 3 years and truly loved getting to know my residents and forming lasting friendships with them. My senior year I worked for the Nautilus yearbook as the Layout Designer, and I really enjoyed getting creative and compiling student’s memories into something they are able to keep and look back on in the future with family and friends. However, my favorite ENC memories often revolve around frozen yogurt dates with my roommates.

What do you enjoy most about your job?
I really enjoy meeting new students and their families. I like finding out the ways in which ENC is a great match for them; whether that be through our challenging academics, our athletic teams, or the great spiritual community and ministry opportunities ENC offers. I love coming to work knowing this community has a common focus—to serve Jesus and love now, as He is loving us.

What are your favorite Boston pastimes?
During my first trip into Boston I visited the Boston Commons and walked through the Boston Public Garden with my family. Having seen many different parts of Boston during my years as a student, the Commons is still my favorite place. I love filling up my backpack with my Bible, journal, a good book and a blanket, and heading into the city for a few hours.

What advice would you give to an incoming ENC student?
Much of your college experience will be shaped by the activities you chose to get involved in and the people you surround yourself with. Everyone says, “Don’t be afraid to try something new!” and that is so true. Be daring in the ways you serve, the ways you love, and the ways you learn. Challenge yourself to learn more, love more, and serve more during your college years than you ever have before. Growth often takes place when we challenge ourselves to explore the unfamiliar—and that’s exciting!

Sporting events would have to be one of my favorites. You haven't experienced the real spirit of Boston until you see masses of excited Bostonians gather together rooting for the same cause.
