Taryn first served on staff with Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru) when she was born to missionary parents and grew up as a Baptist pastor's kid (affectionately, a P.K.). She thinks it's pretty undeservedly awesome that God led her family to become Catholic when she was in middle school, and it's equally awesome she now gets to continue Christ's (and her parents'!) work on campus. Although she's lived in 8 places, Taryn's two homes are Colorado and Benedictine College, where she graduated with degrees in Theology and French and accidentally minored in Philosophy because of a very real friend-crush on Aristotle. She's made over 1,000 paper cranes, her favorite color is brown and she only bites affectionately.
