" The biggest ministry or encouragement to others is having the spirit of excellence in the work that you do, being consistent in what you do and say over time...and just being kind to people.

How would you describe your LETU experience?

LeTourneau helped me prepare because it’s more than just education, it’s more than just knowledge. There’s multiple layers to the foundation of being able to be effective and still stay strong in your faith in a secular working environment. I felt like LeTourneau was building a foundation and equipping me for the unknown.

How has LETU prepared you for your career?

I got the foundation of knowing what the fundamentals are, how to learn, how to communication, how to present and how to lead. 

What advice would you give to LETU students?

The biggest advice I’d have to any young Christian professional, going into any environment is to stay close to God in any decisions. The biggest ministry or encouragement to others is having the spirit of excellence in the work that you do, being consistent in what you do and say over time so that you don’t lose the impact of your excellent work, and just being kind to people. I realized the combination of excellence, consistency and kindness can really change people and help you be a light in a dark place.
