Martin Hall Occupancy

Martin Hall includes freshmen through seniors and has a sister hall, Reed, right across the street. The two halls love to get together for various events or to challenge one another in raising food or other items for the community.

The hall's community emphasis is built on the hall verse: Joshua 24:15 "But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord." This reminds us of our unified pledge to grow spiritually together, holding one another accountable. As a hall, we stress the importance of vulnerability, self-acceptance, and appreciation of diversity.


Martin Hall is a Christ-centered environ­ment filled with purposeful relationships that provide a platform for community living, encouragement toward personal autonomy, academic support, spiritual growth, and an understanding of global responsibility.

"My desire for the women of Martin Hall is that they would find it to be a place of welcome and belonging where they are challenged to grow in their faith, their relationships, and their acceptance of God’s deepest love for them."

I hail originally from the great state of Iowa, but I have lived for several years in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana (from the Midwest for real). After graduating from IWU, I went on to pursue a Master of Divinity degree from Asbury Theological Seminary. I am passionate about conversations with students that lead to reflection and growth. I also love being spontaneous and doing life alongside the students who live in Martin Hall.

Hometown: Waterloo, IA
Colleges Attended: Indiana Wesleyan University, Asbury Theological Seminary
Degree: B.A. in English and Biblical Literature and Master’s of Divinity
Favorite Music: Josh Garrels, Sleeping at Last, Ray Lamontagne and the like
Best thing about my job: Incredible conversations that are usually followed by laughter
Best thing about IWU: I love that IWU is a formational place to grow and live into community.

Community Outreach

At the YMCA, residents of Martin Hall have the perfect opportunity to be used by God and serve in a way that is fulfilling and unique. Achieving this through the after-school program, residents hang out with the kids and show them the love of Christ.
