Where I serve

January 2023 will mark my second year serving this mission! I'm honored to be on the team at the FOCUS Headquarters in Colorado. 

Want to join us in changing the world? Let's talk!  

God has called me to serve this mission in a critical role on the Mission Development Team. On this team we work tirelessly to raise the funds necessary for FOCUS missionaries on campuses across the world to be trained and equipped to share the Good News with students, host retreats, go on mission trips, and attend our annual SEEK conference.

Simply put, my hidden, unglamorous office job helps FOCUS reach exponentially more people with the hope of the Gospel! 

My Story

When I encountered missionaries in college, I was amazed and attracted by their joy and inner peace. They clearly had something in their lives I didn't have, but desperately wanted! I came to understand that the transformational beauty I was seeking through my studies in art school has a name-- Jesus Christ. 

In pursuing beauty through art, I encountered Beauty Himself.

Now, I seek to know and more closely follow Jesus and to bring the beauty and joy of him and his message to people across the country.

And yes! I still love to study, look at, and make art! ;) 

Your Impact

When I said "yes!" to serving the Lord through FOCUS, I was given the great opportunity to trust in the Lord's providence for me. I've been stretched and challenged to trust that God is a good and loving provider, and I've been blessed to grow closer to Him through relying on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners. 

It has been a gift to rely on others in this mission!

 What we do every day matters, and your investment in this mission can truly change our world, one person at a time. 

Please feel free to email me at [email protected] or give me a call or text at 214-293-7953. I'd be honored to share more, answer any questions, pray with you, and schedule a call to invite you onto this mission with me!

Know, Love and Serve God

We encounter God in an intimate relationship through daily prayer, the sacraments and the Scriptures.

Build Virtuous Friendships

By building genuine friendships, we meet students on a deeper level.

Teach Others to Share Christ

We teach students how to share the gospel, who in turn teach other students how to pass it on …
