Hometown: Topeka, Kansas
"My favorite Pepperdine tradition is Project Serve, which is where students have the chance to spend their spring break serving in domestic and international communities. I have had the opportunity to work with environmental nonprofits through Project Serve in Puerto Rico and Waco, Texas. These experiences have given me a humbling perspective on the world around me, while allowing me to learn how to serve well and build community with my teammates."
