Born and raised in central Kentucky, Dr. Blevins moved to Texas to begin her teaching career at LeTourneau University. She has enjoyed teaching for as long as she can remember and began appreciating mathematics in middle school after being introduced to algebra. After studying mathematics as an undergraduate at the University of the Cumberlands, Dr. Blevins attended the University of Kentucky (Go CATS!) for both her master’s degree and PhD, where her research in number theory focused on quadratic forms. An internship at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in 2019 allowed her to conduct vehicle security research as well.

Outside of mathematics, she enjoys reading, baking, playing with her two cats, and sipping on a cup of craft coffee.


Personal Statement

Studying and teaching mathematics has enriched my faith by opening my eyes to the order with which God has imbued His creation. The fact that we can express with pen, paper, and mathematical equations many phenomena of our world is God’s grace to us. But the connections between mathematics and creation are much deeper than what we can write on paper. Math rewards faithfulness, as the Lord rewards faithfulness. Math is deep and seemingly unending, as God’s word is deep and always revealing to us new truths when we are ready. Mathematics teaches us the value of knowing and fighting for the truth, builds perseverance, and leads us to trust our Sovereign God with the things we cannot understand. I am grateful for the opportunity LETU provides to explore these important connections in the classroom with my students.
