About Me

I am a 2011 LCS alumna and excited to be rejoining the Lincoln Christian family. I played volleyball, basketball, and ran track in high school and went on to play basketball collegiately. I also love music and singing, especially worship. I enjoy mentoring and inspiring young people from Kindergarten to college-age adults. My passion is for students here to truly experience transformation in their lives because of Christ and the gospel and be able to carry that into all areas of their life.

Philosophy of Education

I believe physical education is a very important tool in learning about ourselves, whether that be our skills and talents, our attitudes and emotions, and how we interact with others through all of that. As Nick Orduna always used to quote, “You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.” –Plato The truth comes out during challenging activities, competitions, and when you fail or even succeed. Many times, our reactions reflect how we view ourselves, how we view others, and how we view God. The exciting part about that is that in PE class we can redirect all of this in a positive way, learning about who God is, how he has already defined our value, and how we can move forward in the freedom that gives us in each and every activity.
