He restores my soul.” – Psalm 23:1

Where I serve

I serve alongside my teammates at Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville, Missouri. Go Bearcats! I will primarily work with college-age women in Greek life by sharing the Gospel, leading bible studies, and discipleship groups for the continued growth of the Kingdom of God.

My Story

Being on mission is our baptismal right and call as God’s children. Growing up, I learned and understood the Father’s love through my Catholic school education, participating in the Sacraments, and spending time with my family and friends. When the Gospel message was first shared with me it stirred this desire in my heart to grow in relationship with Him and grow His Kingdom. While at The Ohio State University, I grew in my faith and walked alongside missionaries and friends as Jesus, slowly but surely, called me to mission through FOCUS. I am excited as I continue mission on NWMSU’s campus this year!

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. I’ve been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with me, please call or text me at (937) 681-2829 or email me at [email protected] and I will schedule an appointment. I’d be honored to share this mission with you!
