My Story

I grew up in England and lived there up until I started college. I graduated from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA. WAHOOWA! It was during my time at UVA that I came to fall in love with the person of Jesus Christ. It was through an encounter in confession that I came to see that I am loved by a merciful Father who longs for relationship with me. I desire to accompany college students to help them see that they are known, desired, and loved by our Lord. After graduating, I served at Clemson University for two years before moving to Nashville. I am excited to be serving the students at Vanderbilt and to see how Jesus will work in their lives.

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. 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 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.
