Resident Director

Degree: M.A. Emphasis


Why did you choose to come to ISF?

When I chose ISF I hoped for knowledge of how God works. But more than that, I hoped for an experience of Him growing me. I did not choose ISF based on my career plans, I wasn't even sure what career I would pursue when I began. I chose ISF to become prepared to understand and follow Christ through whatever path I took in life. Through the program (and other life experiences) I did decide what path to pursue and I have found myself prepared.

How are you using your ISF degree today?

I work as a Resident Director on a Christian university campus. Though there are many administrative aspects of my job, what I enjoy most is mentoring my staff and residents. To that end, I draw from my ISF experience daily. I directly link my time at ISF to the good that I continue to do in the lives of the students I work with.
