Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at Northern Arizona University. You'll typically find me hanging at the Newman Center, outside playing spikeball, or high-fiving people around campus in my yellow crocs. I have a pretty cool story about how Jesus has changed my life & I would love to share it with you! Come find me and let's get coffee! :)

Meet team Northern Arizona University! 

My Story

My freshman year of college at Georgia College & State University I was approached by a fellow student who asked me to run a half-marathon with her. I had never enjoyed running, but I admired the way this student lived her life and said yes right then! Maria, the half-marathoner, showed me what a personal relationship with Christ can look like. She inspired me to commit to daily prayer and helped me grow deeper in my faith. Through Maria I learned how a simple invitation to a student can completely change someone's life and I have been striving to follow her example ever since. 

The half marathon crew!

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.

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.
