Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh! You'll typically find me hanging out at a coffee shop, the Newman Center, or hammocking around campus. My faith journey and relationship with Jesus have allowed me to live with so much joy and confidence, and I would love to share the story of how Jesus has transformed my life with you sometime! 

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. Because my own life has been transformed by Jesus, I want nothing more than to bring this freedom and 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 know the best way to form disciples on my college campus. I've been constantly amazed by the different souls I've encountered on campus, and I am so thankful for the opportunity to be a witness to the way God is working in and through their lives!

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.
