I was born and raised in a small town in Northern Minnesota. I graduated from a very small Christian School with a class of 7 students. Since then my road to faith has been anything but easy. However, one thing has remained clear - I want to make a difference and I want to help people. I graduated from college in 2011 with an Associate in Applied Science degree, I have since become a Certified Veterinary Technician in the state of Minnesota after passing my National Board exams. I have absolutely loved my job the last 2 years but I kept feeling God pulling me into the mission field. After the sudden loss of a highschool classmate last year I decided that it was my turn to jump in and follow God wherever He was going to lead me. I am really excited about being able to serve Him and His people in Nashville!
