God has called me to the great state of Montana! I will be serving as the Team Director at Carroll College in Helena, MT. What a blessing it is to explore the beauty of God’s creation in the Pacific Northwest and live life with those he places in front of me. Go Saints!
I was born and raised in Colby, Kansas. Growing up, my Catholic faith was a major aspect of my life. I attended every religious education class and youth group meeting, went to Mass every Sunday, and participated in all the various events throughout our diocese. But in reality, I was just checking off the Catholic box and doing what I was told would make me holy, without actually caring about any of it. I was content with living a mediocre life. Then going to college at Kansas State University four hours from home, I finally had the freedom to choose whether my faith would play a part in my life or not. For the first year and a half of college, it didn’t. But I found myself still so unhappy and unsatisfied with what the world was offering me in college.
When I was a sophomore at K-State, I was invited to attend a FOCUS conference that January in Chicago, SLS18. It was there at the conference that I experienced radical friendship, joy, and the love of the Father for the first time. Ever since that conference, Jesus has radically pursued my heart and transformed my mediocre lifestyle into a life filled with joy, the sacraments, and a deep radical trust in the Lord and his providence. My Catholic faith is something I now choose, and choose with great hope!
I want to share this life-giving joy and hope with other women on the college campus. It is my greatest desire to lead students to Christ and bring them to a deeper relationship with him!
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. In order to serve the students at Carroll College radically, I need your help! 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!
Please feel free to contact me at anytime with questions or prayer intentions you may have!
