Where I serve

Am I a FOCUS-Lifer? I don't know! Each year has been a gift to serve the Lord and His children while being an on-campus missionary. After 5 years being on campus, I'm switching tracks and serving as a Program Director for the North Area. I am very excited to serve the Area Director, Regional Directors, Team Directors, and Missionaries in the 8 state area! I'm also getting married to Jacob on October 19th, 2019! I'm going through many changes and transitions but God is so good and present in the midst of it all!

My first two years (Fall 2014-Spring 2016) I was at the University of Wisconsin--Platteville and my third year (Fall 2016-Spring 2017) I was able to move closer to home and be at Winona State University. My most recent last two years (Fall 2017-Spring 2019) I was the Team Director at IUPUI. It is beautiful to see how the Lord is bearing great fruit on all the campuses I have served at.

My Story

By the grace of God, I encountered Jesus through the presence of FOCUS in college while attending North Dakota State University. I was blessed to be nurtured and brought up in a strong, Catholic household, and I knew that I wanted to keep Jesus as a part of my life and to learn more about my faith as I went off to NDSU. FOCUS taught me to invite Jesus to be the center of my life and into everything I do. I discovered the importance of a personal relationship with Christ and Christ-centered friendships.

Through much prayer, the Lord called me to be His missionary by giving back to the Church through service on college campuses. Because I have experienced His love, joy, and peace, my heart desires to let the Lord use me so that He can reach out, through me, to the students He's entrusted to me and they can, too, experience His love, joy, and peace.

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. Thank you so much for your generosity! God bless!
