Home State: Oklahoma
Favorite Destination: Probably somewhere with beautiful mountains and epic hiking! Culturally, though, I’m fascinated with Asia and have loved spending time with the people in Myanmar and Taiwan, especially.
Favorite Starbucks Drink: I usually end up with a latte…
My desk always looks like: I’m a very busy and creative person! (Haha.) It’s really a catch-all for all my current projects—work, school, ministry, and fun—and it shows.
Me in 12 Words or Less: Big-time dreamer with impossible plans in the hands of the Possible God.
I was born in Mississippi, the oldest child of what would end up as a homeschooling clan of seven children. I accepted Christ as my personal Savior at seven years old, and I remember being interested in missions very early on, even becoming pen pals with kids on the mission field all over the world out of curiosity. I took my first mission trip to Myanmar when I was 18 years old, and I’ve never been the same. While I was in Myanmar that trip, I knew God was settling in my heart what I had been struggling with for a while: I needed to get an English degree and teach English. It was something God was going to use in my life to reach more kids and tell them about Him — I just knew it. Fast forward to today, I graduated with my English degree in 2019, and God has already given me over a thousand students across three separate countries to share His love with through English teaching! After all I have seen God do, I can’t imagine what He has coming next and I’m so excited!! In my very limited free time, I enjoy photography, hiking/being outdoors, reading, writing, cooking, and playing piano!
