Advice to Incoming Freshmen

A verse to live by during your college years and beyond: Proverbs 3:5–6, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”

Why I Enjoy Teaching at Taylor

I grew up in Upland and attended Taylor University, so Taylor has been a large part of my life since I was very young. I’ve traveled around the globe, and have seen few schools with the unique combination of strong academics and close-knit community that is TU I really enjoy watching students not only grow in their language abilities but also interact and connect with people from other nations (especially our Chinese students) here on campus and in China.


Watching basketball, traveling, jogging, reading, and playing with my two young children.
