Before joining the CreatEd Life & Learning team, Charity graduated from the Rivendell Sanctuary Honors Program (CreatEd’s beta program in Minnesota). As a student, she became passionate about pursuing the examined life and discovered the communal potential of sharing that life with others. In addition to her socratic studies, she began learning the arts of administration, marketing, and professional hospitality while she worked as an admissions assistant for the program. Throughout her time at Rivendell, she was also introduced to the joys of art, theatre, fine dining, and etiquette — all of which have been lasting loves. Having begun the journey of discovering life’s wonders and curiosities, her search for meaning continued as she furthered her pursuits in western Pennsylvania, earning a B.A. in English and Literature at Grove City College. While there, she thrived academically and eventually served as a Resident Assistant, which provided the opportunity for her to grow in discipleship, event planning, and cultivating team flourishing.
After graduating, Charity spent the latter half of 2016 in Sydney, Australia, where she became a personal tutor for families throughout the city. In her free time, she ventured into Sydney’s live theatres and pursued opportunities to see Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, an off-Broadway show of Disney’s Aladdin, Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Othello, as well as multiple trips to the Art Gallery of New South Wales. She also invested her time in feeding her love for literature, exploring methods of discipleship, and engaging in cross-cultural relationships with native Australians and other travelers from a variety of different countries. Upon returning home to New York, her love for writing and editing led her to accept a project editor position at an ERA Real Estate company while she substitute taught and invested in ministering to inner-city youth. She’s pursued her interests in culture, missions, and education throughout the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean, West Africa, Italy, Australia, and Thailand. Passionate about transforming lives for Christ, she’s come back to serve as a Life & Learning Coach at CreatEd Institute. To supplement her role in the classroom, she has begun pursuing her M.A. in the area of Christian and Classical Studies at Knox Theological Seminary.
