Greetings! I'm a FOCUS missionary.

Where we serve

We have the privilege of serving at the expansion campus of the University of Toledo! This next year will be an adventure with a new team, new home, and new souls to encounter in Ohio! We are honored, blessed, and excited to see what the Holy Spirit has in store. 

Our Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ; to have their hearts transformed the way mine has been and continues to be.

Before I knew Jesus, my life was spent - spent on meetings, organizations, studying, parties, people, and everything I could think of - on so many things that I was convinced I could find my identity in. It was not until I hit the floor, empty, wondering why I couldn't answer the questions, "Who am I?" that I began the search for more - the more that you and I were made for. Through the help of a FOCUS missionary and new authentic friendships, I encountered the person of Jesus Christ for the firs time. Yet, He wanted to meet me there, in my poverty and love me; to let me know who I was meant to be: the daughter of the King. Since that moment  my life has never been the same. 

Today I am able to jump deeply into the waters of life and experience it to its depths. With FOCUS I have been blessed to grow in faith with my future spouse, travel across the country to national conferences, to encounter other young souls zealous for Christ, and go half way around the world to India where I met Jesus in the poorest of the poor and experience the beauty of His world. The journey continues as we have been to Quito, Ecuador to work with the Missionaries of Charity, the local people of Kigoma, Tanzania, and this fall to Toledo, Ohio.

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 blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me 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 we can schedule a time to meet and join in the mission!
