My Personal Philosophy

If I can impact/change one person's life that is enough for me...but more would be even better! I try to live a life of love like so many of the great individuals that have come before me. If I show that to others directly or indirectly, regardless of the setting(work or otherwise), I am being the best person I can be. My hope is that through this I will be able to make a great impact on the lives of others!

Life Outside UD

Outside of Residence Life I am a Christian, Wife, Daughter, Sister, and a Friend! I am blessed to have a great group of friends and family to enjoy. I love singing, music, movies, culture, cooking, shopping, and anything that helps me to have FUN! I am an active participant in my church where I direct our church choir! I enjoy getting to know others well and growing and developing as a person!
