Where I serve

God has called me to rock the University of South Dakota and that is exactly what I'm doing! I get to serve college students, specifically college athletes at USD. I love getting to know people and investing time in authentic friendships. Since I started living my life centered around God my eyes have been opened to the urgent need for His love!  God has asked me to serve this need through FOCUS so watch out USD coyotes here comes Jesus.

My Story

I have spent most of my life trying to seem that I "have it all together." The reality is pretending to have it all together is difficult and exhausting and the truth is I never "had it all together" whatever that phrase even means. Through a series of events in college I was faced with the question, "who am I?" I had always held on tight to my identity as an athlete, but as that started to fade during my time on the track and field team in college, I was at a loss. It was at this time a friend clued me in on the best truth I have ever heard, "I am a beloved daughter of God and there is nothing I can do to earn or lose His love for me." This was a game-changer! I do not want one more person to be mislead as to where his/her identity lies and that is why I am here at USD. God has allowed me to become a FOCUS missionary to share His love for me with all those I encounter and that is what I intend on doing.

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. I've been beyond blessed with the most amazing people who have joined me on mission as I serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will contact you. I'd be honored to have you on mission with me.
