Fact: I love dogs more than most humans. Just kidding . . . kinda.

I chose to come to Belhaven because I wanted a small, Christian university that would provide a safe, nurturing environment to study and practice theatre. I did not want to be just another number in school; I wanted to create meaningful relationships and receive as much one-on-one instruction as possible. Because of my degree from Belhaven University, in addition to knowing about all aspects of theatre, I will be prepared to enter a secular industry as a Christian artist. I appreciate Belhaven’s encouragement to stay strong in my convictions and produce redemptive work. I will also have an idea of what it is like to be a working actress thanks to many guest artists who came to share their wisdom during my time at Belhaven.
