Where I serve

I am very excited to say that I am serving at Minnesota State University. I can't wait to start serving in the fall with my fiance, soon to be husband, Huey Griep. We truly believe the Lord is calling us to serve him through this opportunity, and to walk with college students in their time at school. We are over joyed to serve the students at the University and the St. Thomas More Newman Center. 

My Story

I am a recent grad of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I earned a degree in Community and Nonprofit Leadership. It was here at school where I was able to grow deeper in my faith along side other college students like myself, and with the guidance and friendship of other FOCUS missionaries. Through the challenges I faced, and with the help of other faithful friends, I was able to turn to God. It was through these experiences that I was able to grow in the understanding of the Love of the Lord, and answer the call to become a FOCUS missionary myself. I hope, with my soon to be husband, to be able to live out this yes, by helping students lead lives that bring them closer to Christ. We know well college can be a difficult time and we believe that we have been called to help students by introducing them to the love of Christ and the message of the Gospel.  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. I've been constantly amazed by the different souls I've encountered.


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 prepare to 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.
