Where I serve

After growing up in Missouri and graduating with a Communication and Public Relations degree, I realized God was calling me to serve college students through the mission of FOCUS. My first year was at the University of Memphis and now my second year will be at Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana! You'll typically find me doing some outdoor activity or hanging out at the Catholic Student Organization. I enjoy feeding my love for music, sports or reading/writing..  I am so very blessed to work with the team that I do, and I cannot wait to show others the love and fulfillment that comes from having a deep and personal relationship with Christ.

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to truly come to know Jesus Christ. After living a broken lifestyle through most of college, my life was radically transformed by encountering Jesus during at a spiritual retreat ran by FOCUS missionaries. I experienced His love and mercy in a profound way that caused me to change my priorities and the way I looked at the world. When I got back to my campus, I became aware that every person was a soul thirsting to experience that same peace and joy through the Holy Spirit. I want nothing more than to bring this fulfillment to others and show them that they were made for a relationship with Our Creator. After experiencing an incredible FOCUS mission trip in New Mexico, the Lord prompted me to apply for and eventually accept a position with this organization and complete my first year in Memphis, TN. I cannot wait to see what He will do in and through me this next year! 

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.
