“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.”

Isaiah 43:1

Where I serve

I have grown a genuine passion for the Lord and His Kingdom in my time as a student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln! He has shown me His love and mercy through the little things of life, whether it be praying with people, rock climbing, or baking some yummy pie for my bible study girls. It is an honor to be able to share that same love on campus in Manhattan at Kansas State University in my first year as a missionary! I can’t wait to see what the Lord does for me, my team, and the students I encounter… Go Cats!

My Story

“A new heart I will give you, and a new spirit I will put within you; and I will take out of your flesh the heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.” ~ Ezekiel 36:26

I grew up loving the corn fields in Bellevue, Nebraska as a child! I was raised in a Catholic household, going to mass every Sunday and praying before meals, but the broader culture lacked the depth of knowing Jesus Christ personally. I was driven by success- and perfection-oriented goals attempting to cover up the other areas of imperfection in my heart. I didn’t believe God wanted to encounter me in the places I felt so broken.

I believed I had to do it on my own.

I yearned for authenticity, reaching out through various extracurriculars in high school and college, all the while never feeling truly fulfilled. Then, one day, a FOCUS missionary reached out to me, showing me the person of Jesus Christ: My Savior, Healer, and Redeemer. He has healed and conformed areas of my heart to His Sacred Heart I never thought possible.

My story is a story of redemption, and I am firm in the truth that redemption is for each one of us. There is never a better time to cultivate sainthood in the Church!
