I grew up in a Christian home in Minnesota and attended Fourth Baptist Christian School during my elementary years. At the age of five, my Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Simons, presented the gospel in class. She explained that all people are sinners, but the Lord Jesus Christ made a way for us to be reconciled to God through His death and resurrection. That day I accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior. At the age of 10 I was baptized and joined the local church. At the age of twelve my family moved to Connecticut where I attended Hartford Christian Academy and graduated in the spring of 2014. I graduated from Maranatha Baptist University in 2020 with a degree in math education. I am thrilled to be back at Fourth, where I began my educational journey.
