Texas A&M University in College Station

My Story

I grew up in the Church, but my faith truly soared when I came to college. I became surrounded by others who desired a life with Christ, and I began pursuing Him in a deeper way. I began getting involved with FOCUS sophomore year, when a FOCUS missionary reached out to me and invited me to a Bible study. Ever since then, I have been involved in Bible studies, discipleship, and have lead both groups myself. I am passionate about living the life Christ desires for me and sharing the gospel with students. I am also married to the most amazing husband who will be on mission with me as a part-time missionary at A&M. I am so excited for what God has in store for us with this incredible ministry and campus!
