Where I serve

God has called me to serve at the University of Colorado this year! I will be leaving the beautiful ocean sunsets of California for the majestic Rocky Mountains (quite fitting, considering my nickname's been 'Rocky' almost my entire life). I am so excited to share the love of God and authentic friendship with the students I will encounter and share life with this year! 

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to personal relationship with Christ. My life has been transformed by our Heavenly Father 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 at what God can do, and I can't wait to be that conduit for Him to show others His power and love. 

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!
