I grew up in a Christian home as one of eleven children and at the age of 13 felt called to missions overseas. To experience missions firsthand, I traveled with SOAR International Ministries to Chukotka Russia in 2006 and then the bush of Alaska with CEF Ministries in 2007. Along with both experiences, my love for missions only grew and solidified my calling.
After graduating High school I decided to pursue TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) as an avenue with which to spread the gospel in whatever country God would have me go. I enrolled in Moody Bible Institute and graduated in May of 2013. During my attendance at Moody I had the privilege to teach English in Hong Kong and complete a 6 week internship in Forli Italy.
In June of 2013 I joined SOAR International Ministries to provide English as an additional aspect to their current ministries and assist administratively at our base in Alaska.
