What's your favorite thing about working at Greenville College?

Greenville College offers me the opportunity to mentor my students spiritually as well as professionally, an opportunity that is usually unavailable at secular colleges and universities. This gives me an opportunity to work with students who seek to further the mission of God's kingdom as well as their own music careers. From my experience, most students attending Greenville College possess a stronger spiritual and moral compass than students from similar secular institutions. This affords me the opportunities to further God's kingdom side-by-side with students of like mind as we seek to worship our Creator.


What attracted you to the Music Department, and how do you use it outside of the classroom?

I performed throughout my childhood in the many contests and recital opportunities available to me in the San Francisco Bay Area. When I decided to attend college, it was a natural decision to become a music performance major and pursue becoming a college professor where I could not only enjoy performing, but teach others the joys of music.
I am a Bosendorfer Artist and perform across the nation at other colleges and recital venues. I am an active church music director in Highland IL where I play piano and organ, as well as lead worship teams and a choir. I also enjoy performing sacred concerts and special services when the opportunity presents itself. During special events, I perform at civic functions and play for retirement homes and convalescent hospitals for shut-ins. I find great joy bringing music to those who yearn for it and to see the pleasure in the faces of those who worship and find recreation through my music.
