How do you feel about raisins? 


I think they’re pretty sad…they’re all shriveled up and just not in their prime. I don’t have any strong feelings for them either way, but sometimes you just have to feel sorry for them.

What song is in your head right now?


"This Is How We Do It" by Montell Jordan (I know you just started singing it in your head. Don't lie)

What's your passion?


Making people laugh and making memories are my major passions. I also love working with the geriatric (old people) population! They’re so great and are able to help you step back from the every day hustle and appreciate the moment in the here and now. Lastly, I’d go with being able to have fun with other people and watch as everyone lets the stress go MIA for a while.

What's something about yourself I couldn't find out on Facebook?


Hmm … that’s a tough one. Having Facebook since 10th grade means all the cool/weird details are already all over it. Ooo I know … I was born on my dad’s birthday, which is pretty cool. I’m the gift that keeps on giving!

What are your hopes and dreams for RISE? 


I hope that RISE continues to be a place for diversity, unity and unconditional love. I want other churches across the country to view us as an example and learn to accept people as they are without asking them to change. Too many people are scared to be themselves in a church setting, which is heartbreaking. I want RISE to continue down the path we’re headed to help people realize that the best form of themselves is who they truly are! Jesus was all about kicking it with some weirdos!
