Where I serve

After graduating from Texas A&M University (Gig Em!) and entering the workforce for 2 years, I felt deeply convicted to be boots on the ground for the Church and am now serving as a full-time missionary at Columbia University in New York City! It's been a wild journey from school in Texas to working in DC to living missionary life in New York City but the Lord has been so faithful each step of the way and I know He will continue to be as I step into a new adventure... I'm moving to Virginia! I will continue serving as a missionary but on new turf at UVA this year!

My Story

My life was (and continues to be!) radically transformed by Jesus and I can't help but want that joy and life-changing message of the Gospel for others! As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world: deep, intentional, life-sharing investment in others. I am a missionary today because a FOCUS missionary reached out to me and pursued me in friendship while I was a student and spent time and energy teaching me and modeling what a life of virtue looks like. 

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 be fully available to my students and this mission. I have learned so much of the love of the Father through the incredibly faithful 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 a time for us to chat! I'd be honored to share this mission with you.
