Where I serve

God has called me to serve Him by heading back west to serve the team and students at the University of California, Berkeley! I'm blessed to be able to follow the Lord in this way and to do my part in fulfilling His great command to "GO, therefore, and make disciples of all nations." (Mt. 28: 19) I'm honored to be able to walk with both missionaries and students as we spread the good news of life in Christ! 

My Story

Jesus Christ has changed and healed my heart in incredible ways and has called me to dedicate that changed heart to the work of evangelization on college campuses. Ever since I encountered the person of Jesus, I have felt the call to be someone who fosters this encounter of joy and peace for others. 

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead students to Christ. 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 as the way that I want to do my part in changing the world through the work that FOCUS is doing on campus.  I look forward to influencing one of the most crucial groups of people in the world by engaging with students through small-group Bible studies and through one-on-one mentorship. I'm so excited to see all of the wonderful things that God is going to do through my small "yes" to this ministry! 

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 accomplish this mission. I've been blessed with the most wonderful 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 would be honored to be able to share this mission with you!
