Hi 🙂 Welcome to this page of God’s grace and goodness. I am glad you are here.

Where I serve

After serving for two years at the University of Kansas and another two years at San Diego State, I am excited to be starting my fifth year with FOCUS serving with the Digital Outreach Team, working with students who do not have FOCUS missionaries on their campus, as well as specifically Shippensburg University. This team allows me to continue sharing the Gospel and walking with students while also fulfilling my vocation as wife and mother. Serving the Lord within FOCUS has been one of the greatest gifts I’ve been given, I invite you to join me on the journey. 🙂 

My Story

My life is more fulfilling, more joyful, and more abundant because God has called me His own. In college, my life was changed when the faith was lived out in an attractive, deep, and compelling way by someone my age who I loved and trusted. As a missionary, my greatest desire is to invite people into a relationship with Jesus, who is good and gentle, and to see them become more and more who they were always created to be. To witness students come to encounter how much God loves them uniquely, allow Him to heal their wounds, and be drawn into more joy than they have ever known, is God’s great gift to me as a missionary. It is when people truly come to know God that they share His love with the world from their own experience and I have seen this time and time again with students. 

Your Impact

In saying “yes” to God’s invitation to pursue Him and others through being a missionary with FOCUS, I willingly made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. I’ve been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus. Being on mission with those who are part of my team is a greater blessing than I can say. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I’d be honored to share this mission with you. Really, I mean it. God wants to use both you and me to build up His Kingdom on college campuses.
