Where I serve

This will be my fourth year serving with FOCUS. Woot woot! I will be the Team Director at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, ND. Go Hawks! I am so excited and can not wait to encounter the students there! Pray for me and the students I will meet! :)

My Story

Before I went to college, I decided to take a year off to travel and explore. I lived in Florida and Alaska during that time. I had really fallen away from my faith by the time I decided to attend to the University of Minnesota-Duluth. It was during my freshman year when I met a FOCUS Missionary who radically impacted my life for Christ. Through his example and sharing life with me, I came into a relationship with Jesus and his Church. Since then, I have been growing more in my faith and closer to our Lord. When I graduated college, I started working as a Youth Minister in the Twin Cities area. During that year, the Lord called me to do mission work through FOCUS and bring college students to know the love of our Lord. I am constantly amazed at how good our God is and how much he wants to make his love known! My greatest desire is to bring the students I encounter to the radical and unconditional love of God our Father.

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.
