Where I serve

For the last two years, I've been privileged to serve the students at the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign. It was such a joy to walk with the women God put in my life and see them truly be transformed by an encounter with Jesus Christ and His infinite love. This year, I have the incredible opportunity to be the Team Director at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, MI. This will be the first year for FOCUS at WMU and my team and I cannot wait to lay the foundation and watch the way God works on campus. As Team Director, I will be investing deeply in my teammates and coaching them on how to pave the way for spiritual multiplication on campus. 

My Story

During my freshman year of college at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, I first encountered Christ through intentional relationships with my sorority sisters. Through their genuine love, I came to realize that my faith means something profoundly more personal to me than the way that I was living. It was no longer just something I did, but became the center of my life. My junior year, I met a FOCUS missionary named Megan Parker. Megan quickly became my best friend, my greatest mentor and my prayer warrior. She led me to Jesus at every moment through some of the hardest points of my college life. Through her witness of Christ's love and mercy, I came to know Jesus and learned how to share His love with the people around me. I'm so honored to be a light of hope for students and truly bring Christ's love to those He is calling me to encounter. 

Your Impact

As a missionary, I have the opportunity to rely on the spiritual and financial support of my team of mission partners. This will allow me to live near campus with team of missionaries, lead weekly bible studies, meet individually with students on a daily basis, and invest full time in reaching students with the message of the Gospel. The Mission of FOCUS has never been more urgent or necessary and you have the unique opportunity to join me in bringing students closer to Jesus Christ. I would love your prayers as I take this leap of faith and become a witness for Christ. 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.
