Where I serve

I serve as a first year missionary at the University of South Dakota (GO YOTES!) working intentionally with female athletes and affirming their identity first as beloved daughters of God, and then as athletes.

My Story

I was reintroduced to Jesus in college at Regis University in Denver, Colorado where I studied Religious Studies and Psychology.

I had wandered and was longing for order and spiritual depth I had once known.

After making excuses and living in denial, everything changed. Someone loved me enough to persistently invite me to a FOCUS conference.

After a profound encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist during the Eucharistic Procession, I felt the overwhelming love and peace I was truly made for, and given the grace and courage to change my life by making Jesus the center of it.

I began consistently spending time with faithful peers who’s contagious joy and holy example inspired me. My life has significantly changed for the better since this, as I now live everyday to share the joy, mercy, and love of Jesus with all I encounter.

Your Impact

THANK YOU! There are many beautiful apostolates that could be receiving your generosity, I am honored you’ve chosen to give your gifts here.

You are giving faith, hope, and love to lost souls like I was.

I am so grateful, and I am praying for you.
