Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students on the campus of Northern State University! You'll typically find me hanging out at a coffee shop, the Newman Center, or meeting people 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

I grew up in a Catholic family in Minnesota, but I treated my faith more as a subject to master and an obligation to keep. When I started to encounter missionaries and students on fire for their faith through my Newman Center at North Dakota State University, I knew I wanted what they had. I learned that I was called into a relationship and that Jesus loves me through all of my flaws and brokenness. After graduating with dual degrees in Social Work and Human Development and Family Science, I decided to become a FOCUS Missionary. As a FOCUS Missionary, I can't wait to share the love of Jesus with the students on campus and invite them into a relationship filled with JOY!

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.
