Associate Director of Communications
Restoration of dignity.
Since graduating with my B.A. in organizational communication and Spanish in 2010, I’ve enjoyed utilizing my communication skills in a variety of contexts including higher education, nonprofit organizations, and financial services. I have approximately four years’ experience teaching communication at the college-level (as a graduate assistant and part-time/adjunct instructor), and approximately four years’ experience in marketing and communication in university contexts.

Married to my best friend, Josh, since 2013.
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7).
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I believe that variety is the spice of life, so I love trying (and cooking!) new foods, exploring new places, and meeting new people. Josh and I also love hiking, road trips, and investing in friendships by simply doing life with others.
What do you like most about working at TKU?
I love the shared sense of calling in the lives of the students, staff, and faculty. Regardless of the particular adventure (A.K.A., mission field) we’re each called to, we all know that God has brought us to The King’s “for such a time as this” to submit to His leading, grow in His love, and cultivate His creation.
