About My Family

I am from Roanoke, Ala. I graduated in May 2021 from Auburn University with a degree in biomedical sciences and a minor in philanthropy and nonprofit studies.

During my time at Auburn, I learned what it truly means to pursue Jesus wholeheartedly, delight in Him and fulfill my role in the Great Commission. Specifically, the Father has taught me much about surrendering my own plans for the future. I never anticipated, as a pre-med student, that I could be working in ministry following graduation. Praise God for His faithfulness!

I plan to use my science degree in medical school following a year of serving the college ministry at First Baptist Church of Opelika (FBCO), but I am so expectant of how God will use this year of ministry for His glory as well as prepare me to care for future patients as image-bearers of our holy Creator.

About My Ministry

I will be discipling and equipping girls in the college ministry at the church to grow in their love for God and for their neighbor. This will take place through organized events, one-on-one discipleship relationships, and small group gatherings. I will also be serving to make the name of Christ known to the estimated 19,000 at Auburn University who do not know Him as their living hope.

I truly cannot put into words how excited I am to step into this role, and I am expectant of how my heavenly Father will be glorified.

Pray

Pray that God would prepare the hearts of students so their hearts would be good soil (Matthew 13:1-9). Pray that I would depend on God's strength, sufficiency and guidance in all I do and say (2 Corinthians 12:9-10). Pray for boldness in speaking the truth of the gospel (Acts 4:20). Pray that my ministry would not be man-centered but Christ-centered. Pray I would be joining God in the work He is already doing and not attempting to start my own (Philippians 3:8-11).
