Where I serve

I serve the students and my teammates as Team Director at Edinboro University in Edinboro, PA.

My Story

I was born and raised in Rochester, MN. Although I grew up in a Catholic family and attended Catholic elementary and middle school, they faith was never really more than a set of rules to me. I started college seeking a lot of healing from past relationships and lies the culture had told me. I met a FOCUS missionary during the first week of school and joined her Bible study. In that study I encountered a group of women who were truly alive and full of joy. Through the witness of the missionaries, the women in Bible study, and our priest’s homilies, I was led to the sacrament of confession and received the healing that I was longing for. After that my faith came alive. It was no longer just a set of rules, it was a relationship with the living God!

Over the next four years God continued to work in my heart. He led me to become His disciple by leading a Bible study on campus and investing deeply in a few women just like He did with the apostles. The joy and peace of the FOCUS missionary that I had met my freshman year stuck with me throughout my college career and so did my desire to impact people’s lives just like she did mine. Through this desire God called me to serve with FOCUS.

After 2.5 years as a missionary at MIT in Boston, MA, I felt God calling me to become a Team Director. That path of discernment led me first to West Virginia University for a year and now to Edinboro University. I could not be happier! It is a joy to serve my team and to work to reach the world for Christ with them.

I am a FOCUS missionary because I want to extend to students the same invitation that was extended to me; the invitation to know the person of Jesus and to make Him known, until the whole world hears. 

Your Impact

Part of God’s call for me to radically give my life to Him on this mission is the call to depend entirely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners. These partnerships are a crucial part of my mission and I couldn’t do it without them! 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 to talk with you about the work I’m doing with FOCUS. I'd be honored to share this mission with you!
