Where I serve

For my first two years on staff, the Lord asked me to stay in my sweet home of Alabama, where I served at the University of South Alabama, Go Jags! After saying yes to Him to stay on staff for a third year, God has now called me to serve the wonderful college students at the University of Memphis, in the great state of Tennessee, Go Tigers! (Team pic... coming soon! :))

My Story

I was introduced to FOCUS my freshman year at Troy University, when a missionary approached me after Mass, inviting me to join a bible study. Not exactly sure what I agreed too, I went in with an open heart, and it was there where the journey of coming to know who Jesus Christ is began! Long story short (reach out to me to hear the long version), throughout the rest of my years at Troy, my heart was constantly being transformed by Christ and His love for me through various people and countless adventures. Senior year, fall of 2017, I said no to my long time dream of being a physical therapist, and said yes to being Christ's missionary on a college campus for the next two years with FOCUS! In May 2018 after graduating with a B.S. in Exercise Science, I left home two weeks later and began my journey as a full time missionary! 

My best friend Margaret White and I, Spring of 2018! 

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.
