Hi there! I am so thankful that you are here and interested in joining my team! I am greatly looking forward to this next year interning with Unto, the Humanitarian ministry of Cru. Within Unto, I will be joining the Women’s Health team, based in Orlando, Florida. Unto as a whole has three goals: relieve suffering, restore dignity, and reveal hope. Unto relieves suffering by providing clean water, critical aid, and agricultural support to entire communities. Within the Women’s Health team, we work to fulfill these goals by providing products, education, and support to women throughout the world, while revealing the hope of Jesus Christ.

In June of 2022, I had the incredible opportunity to spend a month on mission with Cru in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. During my time in North Myrtle Beach, I learned how to share the gospel, my testimony, and the love of Christ with locals and vacationers alike. The Lord allowed me to bear witness to multiple women rededicating their lives to Christ. That month showed me the importance and beauty of sharing the gospel and loving others well in daily life. This past May, I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a bachelor of science in biology and a minor in neuroscience. I concluded the four years I spent on campus with a passion for caring for others relationally, physically, and spiritually. 

I am thrilled to partner with you as I spend the next year caring for others and sharing the love of Christ with women locally and globally!
