Church Life: I attend New Holland Christian Reformed Church, where I serve as bulletin secretary, am part of a praise team, and teach catechism. I also participate in other ways as the opportunities arise. Life outside of DCS: I enjoy walking, working with flowers, up-cycling "junk", and time with friends and family.

God has placed me here at this time; I’m excited to work with Dakota Christian students!
