Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students. I am so blessed to be serving at the University of Toledo. 

My Story

Darkness took over my life as a young sixteen year old when my mother was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer. The cancer quickly started moving into her bones. She lived for five more years and then met our Lord in the summer of 2016. I was a senior in college at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. This darkness clouded my relationship with our Lord during college. I sought out outlets for mending my hurting heart, but the Lord was not my main priority. These outlets ultimately ended up hurting me more than helping me. That's when a FOCUS missionary said yes to the Holy Spirit and entered my life. 

 FOCUS was a huge support for me in this time of darkness. A missionary helped me build my relationship with God so that I could rely on Him during my mother's cancer and after her death. I joined the FOCUS staff because I want to reach out to students who are living in darkness. A missionary was my light for Christ in my time of need and I want to be that light for the students at the University of Toledo. 

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. Please pray for me and especially the students of the University of Toledo as we journey together to a life and relationship with Christ. 

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.
