For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, love, and self-control. Do not be ashamed, then, of witnessing for our Lord…

2 Timothy 1:7-8

Where I serve

UNI Placement Day

I am so excited to be returning to Cedar Falls, IA to continue serving students at the University of Northern Iowa!

My Story

The Lord has relentlessly pursued me all my life, but until I encountered the faith in a deep and transformative way early into college, I was content with being just a good Catholic. I became convicted though that good was not what the Lord was asking of me. He wants so much more. He wants my entire heart.

Throughout my senior year of college, I grew in great love for mission and the Lord convicted me by calling me into something beyond the next phase of my career. He was asking me to love and trust Him with my entire heart again as I said yes to serving as a FOCUS missionary!

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 who enable me to be radically available to serve students on campus as a full time missionary. I’ve been blessed with incredible people who have walked with me on mission and I would love to invite you into this journey! 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 would be honored to serve with you!
