Where are you from?

Gainesville, Florida

What brought you to Point University?

I came as a student, drawn to the small size of the school, but also because my parents and aunt had graduated as well.

What are some of your hobbies?

Basketball, tennis, swimming, and reading.

What advice would you give to new students?

College is a wonderful time of life. The challenge for any student is to be able to enjoy it by being active socially, but to balance that social life with study. Time management is key!

What are your research interests?

The Gospel of Mark, The Old Testament in the New Testament (Intertextuality), Women in the Bible, Greco-Roman Culture and Scripture.

Are there any interesting facts about yourself that you would like to share with new or current Point students?

I love lima beans!
