Where I serve

God has called me to serve in our beautiful nation's capital at George Washington University in D.C.! After serving as a FOCUS bible study leader at my alma mater, George Mason University, I said "YES" to becoming His full-time missionary to our nation's future leaders and influencers and walking with them towards Christ.


My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ—especially young women. Jesus has sought after me my whole life and my greatest transformation in my heart occurred in my time in college. Because of this lifelong joy that God has called me to experience and live out, I want nothing more than to bring this reality 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 by walking with his disciples. I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world and building deep and inspiring relationships. I've been constantly amazed by the different souls I've encountered on campus.

Here are some of the young women that I have been blessed to encounter and walk with at GMU!

We didn't let Covid-19 stop us! ZOOM Bible study calls helped us stay connected and involved in each others' 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.
