Where I serve

I'll be returning to Kalamazoo, Michigan this year to serve college students at Western Michigan University, go Broncos! I'm looking forward to hitting the ground running this fall by playing yard games on campus, going to the Farmer's Market, attending athletic events with students. Be sure to say hello if you see me around, I'd love to share how I became involved with FOCUS! 

My Story

As a student, I had such great encounters and meaningful friendships with FOCUS missionaries that helped lead me closer to Jesus amidst a busy, fun-loving college culture. Now as a missionary, my greatest desire is to similarly lead students to Christ and bring this joy to others. In Jesus' ministry on earth, He humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. Looking to Jesus’ own example, I'm excited to love students where they're at and invest in true friendships in order to reach the world.

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 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.
