Where I serve

God has called me to serve this year as the Team Director at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. I will be leading a team of missionaries to help students at Drake encounter the person of Jesus Christ. Since I started living my life centered around God my eyes have been opened to the urgent need for His love!  

Team Drake: Joel, Luke, Olivia and Me! Pray for us!

My Story

I first encountered Christ's love and mercy when I was in college. At the University of Pittsburgh, I thought I had the good life. I had good friends, a good GPA, a great future ahead of myself with a career in medicine, yet something was still missing in my life. I was succeeding in the eyes of the world, yet I was hurting and lost with no foreseeable hope in my life.  In the Spring of 2016 I met a FOCUS missionary named Alex (pictured below), who challenged me to seek the love of Christ. Alex stepped into my life and prioritized our friendship to teach me about my own relationship with Christ. Through this journey, I returned to Christ and His Church. 

It is only in Christ that have I found a deep unshakeable joy, one that won't be shattered by a storm that passes through my life. My deepest desire is that others can find and know that truth too. 

God has called me to devote my life in service to Him, come join me on this journey!


Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to completely rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners. Only through the prayers and donations of people can I be on campus doing the work to which the Lord has called me. I would love to invite you into this mission to change lives and start a conversation with you about joining me with your love and support.
