Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students- specifically the Fighting Hawks! While at the University of North Dakota, you'll typically find me hanging out at coffee shops, crafting at the Newman Center, or looking for new ways to adventure in Grand Forks. I am joined in this mission by my four unique, striving, and loving teammates (pictured below). I love listening to people's stories and learning how their minds work and how their hearts love. I also enjoy sharing with others my college experience and the crazy story of how I got here as a missionary. I have a specific passion for connecting with student athletes- both with sharing and relating in the trials that come with college athletics, as well as with the joys of allowing Jesus into our sport and rejoicing in the call to lead our teammates to the Truth. 

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ so that they may find truth in who they are and the joy that comes with knowing the Father's love. My life has been completely transformed by God and I want nothing more than to bring this joy and clarity to others during the most pivotal and confusing time of their life- college! He has given me so much and I hope to glorify Him through following Jesus' example; by investing deeply in a few and loving others as He did. I continue to be amazed by the people the Lord puts in my life and I am excited to continue to get to know the souls at UND!

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 in this mission with you!
