Where I serve

The Lord has called me to serve the students at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. Gooo big red! You can find me sharing life with students, trying new latte flavors at different coffee shops, and spreading the Gospel on social media. I work alongside my wonderful fiancé and lively team pictured below.

My Story

The summer before my Junior year of college, I worked my first internship with FOCUS in Denver, CO. For the first time, I met women that modeled for me how to truly love God, pray daily, live a life of virtue and so much joy! They inspired me to change my life and go out and do the same for others as they did for me. Since then I have come to personally know Jesus and invite him into my daily life. 

I’ll share my life motto:

"Strive first for the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all things will be given to you as well.” Matthew 6:33

As someone that runs their life with planners and checklists, I need a constant reminder that I am not in control and that I was made firstly to know, love, and serve our Heavenly Father. This string of words is woven into the fabric of my heart, always pushing me to surrender my desire to have it all figured out, and instead live into my identity as a beloved daughter, trusting that everything will fall into place.

Your Impact

I knew that answering the call to join FOCUS would push me to trust in God's providence completely. It is due to the financial support and prayers of my team of mission partners, that I am able to work for the Kingdom on a college campus. It would be my hope that you would join me in my mission. To learn more about joining my team, send me an email at [email protected], and I am happy to meet with you for coffee or virtually! In your email, let me know the best way to reach you and i will schedule and appointment.
