I graduated from Warren Wilson College with a dual major in Spanish and Global Studies. During and after college I worked as a cook in vegan restaurants and was involved in the food localization movement in both North Carolina and New Jersey. During this time, my focus shifted from issues of food quality to issues of food quantity. This shift inspired me to work as a missionary in Niger. During my time in Niger I grew much closer to God. My experiences taught me a lot about inner-peace and the importance of glorifying God through action. I love living in Boston with a community of people who are spiritually engaged. In my free time, I enjoy reading and exercising. I love my family, my friends, morning walks, good coffee, chopping vegetables with sharp knives, good shower pressure, dancing, maps, my hiking backpack, camp fires, my books, sit down dinners, peanut butter, and my two dogs.
This year, I am blessed to be a part of a supportive community of interns that encourages healthy personal betterment and community development. I feel very welcomed into the Church of the Good Shepherd, where I am working on children's formation, justice ministry, and other projects. I hope to be a beneficial resource for the Watertown community. My work here makes me feel very alive. If you have any project ideas, need help with your project, or would just like to talk, please don't hesitate to contact me!
