What made you choose LSTC? 

I chose LSTC because of its commitment to LGBTQIA+ inclusion and emphasis on moving the church forward into the world as it is.

What people and communities helped you to get here?

I am so grateful to Wartburg College and my pre-seminary cohort for forming me from a scared evangelical girl into a bold Lutheran leader. I am especially grateful to my sponsoring church, Redeemer Lutheran Church in Waverly and to Pastor Corey for always supporting me, even through the tough times of discernment.  

What do you hope to learn during your time at LSTC? 

I hope to learn more about Biblical studies, as well as deepen my pastoral care skills and my community organizing capabilities.
