Where I serve

God has called me to serve the student athletes and missionary team at Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa. There are many places to go from the bluffs to the river. We stop by downtown to have a drink at any of the various coffee shops or head out to the other side of town for a movie and pie at Perkins. God was very generous in sending me somewhere so similar to my alma mater in La Crosse, WI, while still continuously revealing Himself to me in new and deeper ways as His missionary.

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to the person of Jesus Christ and His bride the Church through genuine friendship, prayer, Scripture, and the sacraments. As Team Director at Loras College, I desire for my missionary teammates to continue growing as His disciples amidst their struggles and joys.

Jesus has changed my life through so many friends. From my time at Assumption High School and Viterbo University, He taught me how to live in His freedom through prayer and the sacraments in the Catholic Church. By transforming how I saw the world, He gave me an inexpressible joy. I learned the most basic and profound truth that I am the Father's daughter, and that Jesus' entire mission is to bring every person home to His Father. I want to share Him with college students because I believe He will transform their lives. Through their yes, we can reach the world for Jesus Christ as they become missionaries at home, work, and parishes across the nation. This mission has an eternal perspective; I pray that every person sees how their lives impact the world and Jesus' own Sacred Heart.

It can be difficult to plant seeds and wait, but our God is faithful. In my third year at Loras College, I have seen Him building up me, the athletes, and my own teammates. It has been incredible to share life with them and have them introduce friends to the life-changing message of the Gospel. It is only through Christ that we can bear great and lasting fruit, so long as we "remain in Him" (John 15). In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us where we are. He spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus’ own example in reaching the world for God's kingdom.
