  5. Biography

    I love finding something new and interesting in every day. I’ve had varying degrees of addiction to coffee and poetry by Mary Oliver. Even though I don’t study music, I come from a musical family and love singing and playing the piano. I plan on attending graduate school to earn a Masters of Divinity in order to become an ordained pastor in the United Church of Christ. I hope to keep traveling to new places in the world. Sometimes I spend too much time looking at fashion blogs or playing Tetris.

Questions and answers

Why did you choose to attend Baldwin-Wallace?

I liked the idea of being at a school that had a Conservatory of Music and I appreciated the affordable price. I also fell in love with the campus and felt like it was a place where I could feel at home. I was right.
