Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students In the great state of Texas. Sic 'em bears!! 

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing 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 on campus and the beauty of journeying with each person. 

As a student at LSU, my encounter with FOCUS missionaries helped me discover the reality that the Lord aches for each of our hearts, and desires to bring us new freedom and life through deep intimacy with Him. The Lord's pursuit through missionaries and friends in my parish specifically showed me the freedom found through the identity He gives me ,and each one of us, as His beloved. The community of women I found not only showed me the friendship of Christ through their own hearts, but also helped me learn how to share this reality with others. Now, I am heading to Baylor University to walk with other women as we learn how to live in deep relationship with Christ. From this place of relationship and identity, the Lord reveals to us who He has created us to be and what gifts He has given us so that we can go forth into the world to bring this same invitation of love and freedom to others. As Saint Catherine of Sienna said, "Be who God meant you to be, and you will set the world on fire."

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.
