Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at the University of Washington, Seattle! A 25 hour drive from my home town! In Washington I will be leading bible study’s, hanging in the UW Catholic Newman Center, meeting others on campus, hiking in the beautiful city of Seattle, diving deep into the faith with students, and so much more all in for the glory of God.

My Story

I have been blessed to be raised by amazing parents, mentors, and teachers who have passed the gift of the faith to me. Growing up I knew a lot about Jesus but I never really had a personal relationship with Him…

Until in high school when my best friend Max inspired and offered me a simple invite me to go deeper in my faith. Since then I had a hunger to come closer to God. As I went to college I was challenged in many ways; however, the Lord had a plan for me. I found myself at the local Newman center. There I met an incredible community, focus missionaries, and my friend Max was there too. From there I rediscovered my faith and I encountered the Gospel! I learned how to have authentic relationships, live in virtue, have a prayer life, and most importantly grow in personal relationship with Jesus.

…After graduation I worked for a year as a pediatric rehabilitation nurse. While working I discerned that God was calling me for more… In short, Christ loves me and I love Him. There is a need in college campuses that cry for His love and I am drawn to serve Him with Focus. Many college students miss out on having a personal relationship with Jesus and it is because no one has told them about Jesus and His love for them!

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. The mission: to know Christ Jesus and fulfill His great commission.
