RD of Miller & Fry


Tovah joined the Messiah University family in July 2020.

I am so excited to join the Messiah community as a Residence Director as I completed my undergraduate and master’s degrees here, in 2015 and 2020 respectively, and served as an RA during my junior and senior years! Here are some fun facts about me:

  1. I was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA and I love getting back to the city when possible.
  2. I am the daughter of an inner-city missionary who served women and children in crisis. Through this I learned the importance of loving and helping others.
  3. I love going to museums and art galleries and can easily get lost for a few hours in either of those locales.
  4. I taught 4th grade in Tegucigalpa, Honduras for 3 years right after I completed my undergraduate degree in elementary education.
  5. I’ve been told I am a pretty amusing story teller.
  6. I love animals and have a pet cat named Pancake.
  7. I love finding new coffee shops and listening to music (indie is a personal favorite!)
  8. I love baking. Bread, cakes, pies, you name it!
  9. I love to travel and studied abroad in Sydney, Australia for 4 months and got to celebrate my 20th birthday in the Outback. I also co-led a cross-cultural experience to Bolivia in the summer of 2019.
  10. I love watching old movies, musicals in particular.

I look forward to leading the Friller family throughout this year and to experiencing Messiah through the eyes of current students!
