“I came that they might have life and have it more abundantly.”

John 10:10

Where I serve

After serving at Mississippi State for a year, I am excited to be returning to my hometown to be a campus missionary at the University of Memphis! Part of my role is to specifically reach out to women in Greek life, walking with them as they learn to live the Gospel within their chapters and as leaders on campus.

My Story

I was blessed to grow up in a loving, Catholic family and had many opportunities from very early on to grow in my faith. When I began college, I was desperately searching for belonging and for people to run towards Heaven with. When I met the missionaries on my campus, I was shocked by the radical way they were living out the Gospel through prayer, virtue, & authentic friendship. Witnessing the way they centered their lives around God showed me what abundant life looks like, made me desire it, & gave me an example of how to live it out.

I started leading a Bible study my senior year. It was one of the greatest gifts I have ever received to watch these women fall madly in love with God and be changed by the conviction that their identity does not lie in their chapter, their grades, or their friends, but simply in being beloved daughters of a good and loving Father.

Below are photos of some of the women I have been blessed to walk with over the years.

I would love to share more of my story with you sometime!
