My name is Kaylee Lucas and I'm an M.S. Commerce student from Richmond, VA. I studied Religious Studies in my undergraduate career here at UVA, where I learned from the distinguished Professor Marsh. I also spent a lot of time at the Bonhoeffer House, attending the morning Bible study and Vintage, where I was able to bridge my theological interests with investing in a community. Last summer, I traveled to Kenya and worked at a microfinance loan hub. I'm interested in learning how to integrate a concern for human flourishing with my more practical business studies this year.

I'm Anna Nott and I was born and raised in Richmond, VA. I love my family, cooking with spices, my cat Emily whose 14 years old, good tunes, reading about people who do ridiculous things, poetry, kids, and being out in the fresh air. I'm a religious studies major, French minor, and work part-time at the After School Enrichment Program at St. Anne's-Belfield School here in Cville. I'm hoping to work on a ranch post graduation, then maybe move to France to teach! I grew up being taught about Jesus and now want to investigate my perceptions of him versus the real him. I would describe myself as observant, creative, blunt at times, thankful, perceptive, proactive and resourceful. Most of all, I'm pumped to be a fellow for this 2014-2015 school year at the Bonhoeffer House with Theological Horizons!
My name is Justin Reeves and I am a fourth year student here at UVa studying Chemistry. I have always been interested in the sciences and how I would be able to use science to help people. This led me to wanting to pursue a career in medicine or pharmacology. I am an only child but have several friends that I consider the brothers I never had. I have a passion for missions work as I have been to Uganda and the Dominican Republic for service trips. I love the Spanish language and consider myself very proficient but not quite fluent yet. I love God and have been serving faithfully in church for as long as I can remember. I am currently involved in OneWay Christian Fellowship here on Grounds where I serve as a small group leader. I love helping out wherever I can and love being a part of things so I'm excited to see where this takes me!
Keith Wilson is a fourth-year student from Louisville Kentucky. Studying Leadership and Public Policy at the Batten School, Keith has been exposed to a wide variety of coursework and problems to solve. While coursework is fun, Keith's college experience has mainly been defined by what goes on outside of class. Living to learn and learning to live all in accordance to The Lord's will can often be a tricky thing. Therefore, Keith has filled his life at UVA with wonderful faith guides and spiritual leaders. During his time as a Horizon Fellow, Keith hopes to better understand the idea of vocation and how God shepherds his people to the right places. Keith is eager to enter the workforce in the fall of 2015 and hopes to begin his career in sales. Keith's hobbies range from singing with his a cappella group, brewing a nice pot of tea, playing squash, and artisanal sandwich making/eating. It is Keith's goal to one day own an upscale gas station/convenience store and teach at his alma mater, Trinity High School in Louisville, Kentucky.
