I spent the first decade and a half of my life moving across the States with my parents as they did inner-city evangelism. Working by their side, I had the unique opportunity to see lives changed and hearts won for Christ. As I grew and matured, the international background of my family propelled me into the field of languages, and I fell in love with the Spanish language from the very first day of class. Inspired to become a Spanish teacher, I pursued a Spanish and Education double major at Walla Walla University and graduated in the spring of 2022. Some of the highlights of my time at WWU were completing a minor in music and studying abroad in Argentina for six months. Because of this latter experience, I have a passion for promoting cultural awareness and empathy,  and I am determined to continually grow in my knowledge and ability to bridge cultural divides. 

When asked about my hobbies, there is one that stands above the rest. Music has always been a big part of my life and I thoroughly enjoy playing my violin. Arranging music with my piano trio and being part of other musical ensembles is a source of great joy to me, and I love singing and playing in church. Besides making music, I love to travel, ride horses, hammock, and capture God’s creation through photography. 

I am thrilled to be here at CCA. My goal is for each student to develop a lasting, intimate relationship with Christ and to emerge from this educational experience with a burning desire to share His love with others.
