I first came to North Greenville College with dreams of being a Broadway star, but thankfully God put many impediments in my way that led me to graduate with a degree in English. I began my legal career as a paralegal in a small law firm in Greenville, SC and from there, my path wove from North Carolina to Rhode Island to Washington, DC. During this time, one of the few constants in my life was my relationships with former professors and students from NGU who prayed with me and for me. Ultimately, through those relationships, God called me back to NGU where I delight in using my legal background to challenge students to think critically about the intersection of faith and law.
