With a passion for historical research and literary analysis, I am confidently driven toward the field of higher education, and hopefully one day professorship, a vocation to which I believe God is calling me. With a deep gratitude for Regent's faculty and staff and the Christian mission Regent serves, it is my great hope to begin a new chapter of life invested in the new growth of Regent University. With a proficiency in computer knowledge and Microsoft Office expertise, I believe it is my niche to apply for data entry and management positions where my talents and skills may be of greatest benefit to the mission.
