About My Family

I'm a 23-year-old native of Birmingham, Ala., returning to my alma mater to help spread and strengthen the kingdom of God. I received my bachelor's degree in accounting from Auburn University in December 2018, but God has led me not to filing tax returns, but rather to ministering to college students. I am so excited to be part of the college ministry that God used to transform my life as a student and lead me to surrender everything I am to the Lord. God has given me a passion for understanding those around me and helping others see the beauty of Jesus. I'm happiest counseling and encouraging others, hearing about how God has worked in someone else's life or discussing Tolkien over a cup of coffee.

About My Ministry

I will be serving as a missionary resident with the college ministry at First Baptist Church of Opelika, the church I attended as a college student. My role will be to help students at Auburn University know and love their God, whether that means coming to know Him for the first time or growing more in Christlikeness. To fulfill this role, I will be mentoring students, one-on-one, leading a small group, coaching other small group leaders, sharing the gospel on campus and completing needed administrative tasks. My hope is that through this ministry, many of the 19,000 Auburn students who don't know Jesus will come to experience the full joy and eternal life that are only found in Him.
