Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students, specifically at Western Washington University (go Vikings!). You'll typically find me hanging out at the Viking Union, the Newman Center, or anywhere else on campus. I love stories, both telling them and hearing them, so feel free to stop by to share stories of how Jesus is working in our lives.

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. I get to do this in a particular way as a team director and a married missionary. Part of my work is helping other missionaries to evangelize the campus, and part of my work is to share my family life with the students. Just as we welcomed a new miracle, baby Gisela Marie, into our family two years ago, we get to welcome students into our lives 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 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 I will schedule an appointment. I'd be honored to share this mission with you.
