I am excited to reach out to the youth of the Waynesburg community and invest my time with students to help them know Jesus better and develop friendships.  I am working towards a Nursing degree at Waynesburg University with a minor in Biblical Ministry Studies. I enjoy drinking a good cup of coffee and watching football on Sunday afternoons.

    I joined the First Pres. staff during the Fall of 2010.
