I was born and raised in Fremont, Nebraska and grew up attending First Lutheran Church. I graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in May 2018 with a degree in Psychology. You will often see me wearing red as I am a huge Husker fan, so huge that I was the mascot for three years! I was introduced to Hope Church when the Hope Youth Junior High group came to Immerse Lincoln, where I was an intern, in Lincoln, NE for their 2017 summer work trip. When I was seeking youth ministry positions, I was ecstatic to hear Hope Church had a part-time position open as of August 2018. I am excited to work with Hope Church! One of my life verses is Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” When I was struggling with my plans on becoming an engineer, I prayed to God to ask Him what He wanted me to do. God spoke to me that same week and said I needed to look into youth ministry. I am so thankful God threw this curveball at me and I’m excited to see how he blesses me in my ministry
