Expertise

Sport & Exercise Psychology is a huge passion of mine. The effects stress plays on cognitive and somatic levels of performance is extremely interesting to me. Psycholinguistics and its role in performance is my current area of study and is a growing field in the sport psychology world. On a personal level, I have a desire to equip and guide coaches to provide for their teams beyond the physiological aspects of their training but support them personally and spiritually in their coaching endeavors.

Why Jessup

I have been a member of the Jessup community since 2005 and have had the privilege of watching it grow to what we see today. Even though some things have changed as time has gone on, the goal and pursuit of Christ has remained constant in the community at-large. Those pursuits of Him is why I fell in love with Jessup and feel blessed to be a member of our community alongside fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. The development of our Applied Sciences department is exciting to be a part of and I am blessed to contribute to its growth by focusing on the development of our Kinesiology Department alongside Dr. Roberts
