Where I serve

I have been blessed with the opportunity to serve students at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio! I am delighted to serve alongside my teammates and to walk with students as we each grow in deeper intimacy with our Lord.

My Story

While pursuing a double major in Mathematics and Economics at Northwest Missouri State University, my initial college experience followed the familiar pattern of living for the weekends and attempting to fit in. However, a pivotal moment came during a retreat organized by the Newman Center, where I encountered the divine mercy and love of God. This encounter sparked a deep yearning within me for something more than the routine I had settled into.

By my second year, I found myself grappling with a growing conviction that the path I was on wouldn’t lead to true joy. It was during this period that I again crossed paths with the missionaries on my campus. Their radiant joy and unwavering devotion to Christ spoke volumes, illuminating for me the transformative power of a relationship with Christ Jesus.

Now, having experienced the profound love of the Father, I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as a missionary myself, sharing the same hope and love of our Lord that continually changes my life each and every day.
