Hello there, I’m so glad you’re here!

Where I serve

The Lord has generously called me to serve at Texas A&M University! I will be walking with Greek women on campus starting this fall alongside eight other missionaries. 


My Story

Throughout my life I had always known that God was my creator, yet not until my sophomore year of college was, I truly invited to know the personhood of Jesus Christ. As my world seemed to have crumbled in my own hands, I turned to the only person I knew to blame for it all, God. What began as an angry, tear-filled judgement on His plan for me turned into realizing everything I had lost paled in comparison to the way the Lord knew, saw, and loved me.  

In this time, the Lord knew I needed accompaniment and sent a FOCUS student leader to invite me to her bible study. Weekly bible studies turned into a dear friendship, and she walked with me as I built a relationship with the Lord and entered the fullness of the faith. He patiently pursued me and placed in my heart a desire to become a FOCUS student leader myself. One of my greatest joys of college was getting to lead a group of women in a bible study for my last two years of college.

When faced with the decision of what to do postgrad, I was fairly set on using my Economics degree, but the Lord had a greater plan for me! I vividly remember the Lord inviting me to consider FOCUS while sitting before Him in our campus chapel. One step turned into another, and I have answered His call to be a missionary! 

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. Truly this mission would not be possible without your generosity. And for that, I am eternally grateful. If you are interested in joining mission, let me know the best way to reach you and I can set up an appointment. I can be reached by email at [email protected] or by phone at (408) 313-2292.
