My Trevecca Story

My family bleeds purple, so Trevecca was always my dream school. It wasn’t until I arrived as a student at orientation that I found out what made it so dreamy: professors that called me by name and prayed with me, staff members that mentored me, lifelong friends that God intentionally placed in my path (which is an amazing story on its own that I love to tell), worship services multiple times a week, tons of fun activities on campus, and – let’s be honest - ice cream any time I wanted it. I wanted to work for Trevecca ever since I worked for Admissions as a sophomore, so I am thrilled to get to be part of introducing others to the Trevecca community and gaining so many new friends along the way!

What I Love About My Job

I love getting to work with a team of people that have a genuine passion for the work in which God is using them. I take so much joy in co-leading the Student Ministry Teams, getting to know their hearts, and ministering to so many students alongside them. I also love getting to hear the stories and dreams of the students that I meet and serving as a mentor and friend for them as they pursue God’s leading in their lives.
