More about Parker

Future plans:

My next step will be working at Highlands Community Church in Student Ministries. We'll see where I go from there!

How has your major contributed to your professional or personal development?

Being a Religious Studies major has stretched me to think outside my own tradition and more deeply consider the others' viewpoints. By this, I can be more empathetic and understanding, and I have been trained to think critically about my own thoughts and presuppositions.

What has been your proudest or most significant accomplishment during your Gonzaga career?

My proudest accomplishment has truly been building relationships in my time here. I've had the opportunity to try to pour into a lot of people, and I think (or at least hope) that I've done so in a way that is faithful to God and helpful to them.
