Where I serve

Finishing up my Advertising degree, God tugged on my heart to serve college students as a FOCUS Missionary. I currently at the University of Tulsa in Oklahoma with my amazing team! You'll typically find me with a cup of black coffee in my hand, at the Newman Center, or trying to convince students that I'm not weird at all (joke's on them). Jesus changed my life in radical way and continues to love me with a bouquet of blessings each and every day!

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world. College students have many struggles and pressures that they face in just their 4+ years on campus. Turning to Christ changed my relationships with family and friends for the better. I could not be happier with my growing relationship with Jesus, falling more in love with Him each day and I want nothing more than for others to feel the same joy as well.

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 so far who had journeyed with me as a student missionary in my undergrad and I continue to be blessed with new people as I continue to 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 schedule an appointment. I'd be honored to share this mission with you.
