A Little More:

Hello! I'm a sophomore studying early childhood education at California University of Pennsylvania. After finishing my undergraduate degree, I would really like to either start my teaching career or return to school to acquire my special education degree. Since I was a young child, I have attended Pleasant Hills Church. I am incredibly appreciative that I was able to grow up here. I have met a lot of individuals during my time here that have persisted in my life as role models. I have served in the nursery on Sunday mornings, Seek Week in the summer, and have led a middle school group at crossover throughout the past couple of years. I like spending time with my family, and friends, and participating in sports (added bonus when more than one of those happens at once). Outside of church, school, and my family, I enjoy coaching basketball at Cornerstone Prep, my alma mater! It's safe to say that this is one of my happy places as well. As a church intern this year, I am eager to embark on this new path.
