When I arrived as a freshman at Arizona State University from Texas, I knew no one. I walked around seeking Christian fellowship. After visiting a few different groups, it became apparent to me that The Navigators, unlike some of the other groups, cared for me beyond being a number in their ministry.

The Navs quickly became not just an organization, but my family. Being far from home, it was this community I grew to cherish. The Navigators placed strong importance on discipleship and helping me grow closer to God.

I met one-on-one with a staff woman, and for the first time in my life, I was reading the Bible—hungry for what God had to tell me! Going to the desert of Arizona was a time God set aside to refine my life. He brought me through healing of past hurts, and brought core lies to light, that I was not even aware existed!

I see great value and opportunity in spreading God’s truth on the college campus. My passion now is to see others experience the same personal relationship and freedom in Christ that I have come to know. After 8 years on staff in Southern California, Penn State, and Oregon, I am pleased to continue laboring in a new missions role for the Western Division and on campus at the University of California – Irvine.

I want to equip, engage, and empower students to know their identity in Christ and labor for the Gospel both where they are and into the nations. I cannot wait to see God’s transforming power impact the students on campus for His glory! Will you partner in this adventure with me?
