I grew up as a missionary kid and lived in Germany from the age of 3 to 13 before my family moved to San Antonio, Texas. Ministry and missions have always been a part of my life. When I was 22, I went on the World Race, an 11 month mission trip and traveled all throughout Asia. I returned to Japan for 6 months before going back onto the field to lead a squad with the World Race for another 5 months. In 2019, I attended the Generation 42 leadership Academy where I met my fiancé, Sara. Following our graduation from G42, we knew we were called to move to Knoxville full-time to work with Raising a Voice.

My role with RAV will be in business and community development. Alongside RAV, I will help to develop local businesses where we can foster a safe and encouraging workplace for our women to grow thrive and step into their passions. God has given me a heart for seeing the potential in others and calling out who He created them to be. I love to watch people come alive and step into their full and true self. This is what I hope to bring to the businesses created through RAV.
