“I was born into a loving Christian family in the suburbs of Seattle and lived there my entire pre-college life. I have long enjoyed the outdoors and enjoyed physical challenges. Over the past 10 years, I have increasingly become invested in my academic and especially musical studies. I am currently majoring in music with tracks in composition, piano pedagogy, and music ministry. I also sing in the Whitworth Choir and Whitworth Presbyterian church choir and have limited organ experience. Music is central in my calling and has been a focus in my training, so if you have music needs in your ministry, I may likely be able to meet them. My most relaxing moments are spent with people. I often enjoy philosophical and theological discussions with my friends. I enjoy investing in both the youth and the elderly and having significant ministry experience both in a retirement community and in various youth ministries.”
