Interesting fact about me

I have coached girls high school basketball (for 12 years now) and love it!

Why I chose Houghton

I grew up in the Wesleyan Church and heard of Houghton through music and ministry groups visiting my church and camp.  From the minute I arrived on campus, I fell in love with Houghton.

Favorite Houghton Memory

Leaving at 11:00 p.m. with three friends to drive through the night to New York City to attend the ticker tape parade for the release of the Iranian hostages.  (Yes, this dates me!)
