Where I serve

God has called me to serve as the Team Director on the campus of Northern Arizona University. Go Jacks! You'll find me hanging out at all the coffee shops, the Newman Center, or bouncing around campus. I have a pretty cool story about how Jesus has changed my life -- I think you should hear it sometime! Come find me and I'd love to share it with you. :)

My Story

Growing up in a Catholic family in Nebraska, I knew about the Lord and of His life, but I lived in a faith relationship that was built upon obligation. My life was built upon an identity of perfection and constant striving. Yet, through the investment of missionaries and the Newman Center, I grew in my faith and was able to find the truth that the Lord wanted to know and love me personally, even through my brokenness and flaws. My life was changed because of this relationship. So as a missionary for FOCUS, I am able to invite others into this relationship and see God transform their lives as He did mine! 

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. I believe that the seeds of faith that are being planted, the fruit of conversions, the strong trees of virtue that are being cultivated are because of the prayers and financial support of my mission partners. 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.
