Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at the University of Texas at Austin! Hook ’em! I am very excited and humbled to serve God and His kingdom through the same apostolate He used to deeply impact and transform my life. Please pray for me, my team and the students of UT!

My Story

Growing up I always knew about Jesus, but it wasn’t until my junior year of college that I learned I was actually created for relationship with Him! As a transfer student at San Diego State University, I quickly understood the difficulty of finding community on a college campus.

As what seemed to me as a “last resort”, I stepped foot into the Newman Center and was immediately invited into a bible study by a FOCUS missionary. That bible study changed my life. Not only did the girls become some of my best friends, I was introduced to the person of Jesus Christ, His radical love for me and my identity as a beloved daughter of God.

I have experienced both the emptiness of life without Christ and the fulfillment of life with Him during my time in college. As a missionary, my greatest desire is to introduce students to the love of Christ that has radically changed my own life.

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.
