About My Family

By way of Maryland; Washington, D.C.; and New York City, I currently reside in beautiful San Diego, Calif. “All things work together for good, for those who are called to his purpose” (Romans 8:28), and I truly believe that my personal history and professional background is in accordance with my desire and calling to be used by God in this capacity.

For me to be able to use my spiritual gifts, professional training as a psychotherapist and life coach, and my personality traits at San Diego State University (SDSU) as a collegiate missionary will be nothing short of a blessing to my life and to the lives of many students. I’m ready to surrender and give way for Christ to use me and be extremely effective within this role and to grow me personally during this journey.

About My Ministry

As director of missions for SDSU’s Challenge campus ministry, it is vital to have a growing understanding of the needs of others in the deepest sense. Spiritually, this involves having an understanding of not just who needs to be reached locally and globally, but HOW to reach them. I am excited and prepared to meet this challenge head on.

Our vision is to see SDSU saturated with the message of Jesus by developing spiritually mature disciples of Christ who will, in turn, evangelize the lost and multiply disciples of Christ. We do this through outreach on campus and by inviting students of different backgrounds to our weekly, large-group gathering where they can hear a gospel-centered message from the Bible and be invited into a community of Christ-followers who love them and are committed to helping them grow in their faith.

This contribution is made with the understanding that The North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention, Inc. has complete control and administration over the use of the donated funds, and gifts received above the specific need will be used in similar areas where the need is greatest.


I request that your prayers for me during this time of ministry be centered around your belief that your prayers possess the power to be answered. I pray for you to join me in asking for wisdom, clarity, boldness and understanding. One of my primary roles will be to recruit, develop and deploy college students in creative missions, both stateside and abroad . As of the fall semester of 2020, this will take on new meaning. Adapting to the rapidly changing environments of students means to also be able to adjust my life accordingly, without compromising the main priorities of personal prayer and devotion and family. Please pray with me in this.


Of the many ways to participate, your support (of any kind) is welcome. Financial help is often thought of as the only go-to for missionaries, but to receive a text/call/letter with heartfelt support would be priceless! I honestly welcome all forms of positive support and encouragement throughout this time of service!
