"My heart's desire for my students at CCC is that they will make choices that glorify God in every part of their lives. I want my courses to help them achieve godly goals and to equip them to be more effective servants of the Lord, especially through improved writing and analytical skills. They can use many of the skills they develop in literature classes to improve their understanding and communication of biblical truths."

Interests: reading, listening to Christian and classical music, computer graphic design, activities connected to homeschooling our sons, and participation in a local women's Bible Study
