Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at the University of Mary in Bismarck, ND, as a full-time Varsity Catholic missionary. I am excited to invest in the lives of college students, invite them into virtuous and authentic relationships, and bring God into their lives. 

My Story

My junior year of college, my Cross Country teammates were talking about the end of the world. I remember looking out my bus window and thinking to myself, "God, I am not ready. Please help me." A week later, my friend invited me to a national conference called SLS. It was there, where I had a very powerful encounter with the Lord. This was a life changing experience because everything I had learned about my faith went from my head, to my heart.

After the conference, I went back to college where the FOCUS missionaries really helped me dive deeper into my faith. As a D1 athlete at South Dakota State University, my days were packed, but the FOCUS missionaries helped me make time for God. They invited me to Bible Studies, retreats, authentic friendships, and came to my Cross Country and Track meets.

The reason I am so passionate about this, is because I want to give back for everything FOCUS has done for me. I want to invite women into virtuous and authentic friendships. I want them to know that they are loved and wanted by a Father who loves them SO much. I want to bring God's joy and love into their lives. In a world that is broken, I want them to know that God is always with them.

Your Impact

My mission begins with you :) 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.

My prayers go out to each and everyone of you :) God Bless!
