Personal Statement

I teach at Hesston College because I feel called to be here. There have been a couple of moments in my life where I feel like God destined something specific for me and working at Hesston with nursing students is one of them. I get such joy watching students who have worked tirelessly to achieve something great, walk across that stage at commencement and pinning. I feel like I am a part of something very special.
