While I have only been at Clarke for a short time, it’s vibrant and unique life energy has already made me enjoy coming to work every day, taking on new challenges, and meeting new people.
Purpose – Mission of work
College campus ministry is my vocation and my passion. It is truly a joy and a blessing from God to listen to the students, staff, and faculty share their lives, to walk with them in their faith journeys, to sit with them in their struggles, and to celebrate with them their successes. I thank God that I am able to serve others and show them agape love daily.
In addition to campus ministry, I have worked in a few other fields. In college, I sold $50,000 worth of Cutco Cutlery over two summers and was an assistant manager and field training manager. After graduating college, I started my own photography company, which I ran for the next 5 years until I entered full-time campus ministry, photographing portraits, events, products, sports, and rock climbing. I also worked as a rock climbing instructor, guide, and route setter both in college and after college at a 100ft cement grain silo. I have enjoyed my varied career past because it has provided me with many skills, many friends, and many wonderful and invaluable life experiences.
