Where I serve

I am currently entering into my fourth year on staff where I am serving at the University of Memphis. Over the course of the last three years I have learned how uniquely beautiful each soul is and no matter their background at the heart they all deeply desire one thing: relationship with Jesus. I’m eager to learn all the new ways the Lord is going to change not only my own heart but the hearts of the students I will get to meet this upcoming year! Go Tigers!

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus through my encounter with FOCUS missionaries my sophomore year of college. Through authentic friendship and divine intimacy I encountered Jesus on a level like never before. My missionaries and friends challenged me to pursue excellence in the faith which allowed me to then challenge my peers to do the same! This experience ignited a missionary heart inside of me. I look to Jesus own example to model my own missionary journey. 

The missionary who started this journey by investing and loving me throughout my college years. What a model of Christ-Like Virtue!

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.
