Originally from outside of St. Louis, I came to Columbia to attend Mizzou’s Journalism School in 2014. While I became a Christian in high school, I still struggled with a lot of shame about my own brokenness and felt like I had to prove myself to be worthy of God’s love. I got plugged into a small group my first semester, and through some pretty raw community and the faithfulness of my small group leaders, I was gently brought back to grace. College ministry has been placed on my heart for a few years now, and I’m so excited to be able to walk alongside college students, invest in their lives and learn together about Jesus and His kingdom. In my free time, I love seeing movies, dance parties, taking pictures, and cooking.
