This year the Lord has called me to work as the Team Director at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff! I have four amazing teammates that I will get to help equip, form, and send on mission. I will still be working with students and sharing the gospel on campus. I cannot wait to reach the souls of this campus!

My story begins in Bismarck, North Dakota where I went to the University of Mary. I competed on the cross country and track team for all 4 years. My identity started to become slowly wrapped up just in this aspect of my life. Through a FOCUS bible study I found authentic friendship and created the most amazing relationships with the girls on my team. This allowed me to strengthen my relationship with God and put my worth in so much more then success or failure on the track. Being a daughter of God became my identity and completely changed my life. My hope is to share this with the athletes I encounter at NAU and share in my love for the faith and the radical way Christ changes lives.
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. 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.
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.
We encounter God in an intimate relationship through daily prayer, the sacraments and the Scriptures.
By building genuine friendships, we meet students on a deeper level.
We teach students how to share the gospel, who in turn teach other students how to pass it on …
