Throughout college, I never really had any definite plans for what my life was going to look like afterward. I didn’t have a specific career in mind, and graduate school was never a serious thought. All I knew was that I wanted to be in ministry, loving on people. I had known that since high school, which is when the Lord began cultivating in me a heart to pour out His love to those in need. But I had no idea what that was going to look like. In His faithfulness, God used the unknowns to shape me, lead me, and draw me closer to Him.
The first 9 months after graduation, I was in short-term roles at Compassion International. During my time there, I learned a lot about myself and the world of serving children in poverty. As my time there was ending, a door opened up on the communications team at VisionTrust, and I’m excited to begin this part of my journey! What a great family to be brought into. I’m definitely going to learn and grow a lot, and I’m grateful to be given this opportunity. I’m also really excited that this new role will allow me to exercise not just one of my passions, but many of them – the desire to serve others, creativity, and love for details.

I try to eat Mexican food at least once a day. I still haven’t conquered a 14-er, but that’s okay because figuring out how to drive in the snow is a pretty big accomplishment in itself.]
