Personal Interests

I am passionate about health education and feel that populations function optimally when informed and able to access preventative health care. I have served on medical missions both in the US and abroad. I would like to continue this as well as share my experiences with others so they may do the same. I also coach the pom team at Mingo Valley Christian as well as choreograph their spring musical each year.

Community Service

My family attends Christian Chapel in Tulsa Oklahoma where we help and support local events such as vacation bible school, Royal Family Kids Camp, and Crisis Pregnancy Outreach. I have also served as a volunteer camp nurse at Kids Across America in Golden Missouri.
