Where I serve

After serving as a campus missionary in Louisiana for the past three years, the Lord has called me home to Alabama to serve in a new & exciting way. My husband Connor & I reside in Birmingham, AL where he serves as a campus missionary at University of Alabama Birmingham/Samford University & I work remotely for FOCUS' marketing team. My role in marketing invites me into a new mission field; allowing me to serve the missionaries and students on campus by providing resources and helping them encounter God through beauty. 

My team of talented creatives work to serve our 800+ missionaries & FOCUS' Denver Support Center staff through branding, social media, merchandizing, digital content & so much more. See my team below!

What a gift it is for Connor and I to continue to share the gospel & make disciples of Christ through our work with FOCUS, the organization that brought us together, as we met during our time as missionaries on campus! Check out Team UAB/Samford below! 

My Story

My life was radically changed when I encountered Jesus Christ in a powerful way as a college freshman. The FOCUS missionaries on my campus led me to Christ, teaching me how to pray, showing me authentic friendship, & challenging me to grow in virtue. As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead souls 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 during my time 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 work to bring souls to Christ. This mission wouldn't possible without them. 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.
