Ministry background: When I was in 8th grade, I didn’t want much to do with my faith. I didn’t have a daily prayer life, and I definitely did not imagine I would ever lead in any ministry capacity. My parents, however, sent me on a retreat, and my life changed forever. I helped serve on multiple retreats in high school after that first experience, and quickly grew in love for the Church and for the Lord.

In 2011, I started learning how to play guitar, and began playing with our church’s youth band. Our worship leader mentored me throughout high school and I absolutely fell in love with praise and worship. When I graduated high school, I decided I wanted to work in ministry, and Ablaze found it’s way into my life. I joined at the end of my freshman year of college, and have enjoyed every triumph and failure along the way. I have learned so much, and I am excited to see her grow.

Currently, I work at a parish in downtown Bryan, TX and absolutely love it. My 7th and 8th graders truly desire to learn more about the Faith and grow in their love for Christ. I have also begun leading worship around the country, and primarily in Dallas, TX. I hope to continue leading worship and make it my full-time job sometime in the future.

I am so thankful for this journey the Lord has brought me on, and I cannot wait to see where He takes me next!

Passions and interests: Playing guitar and piano, singing, leading worship, watching crime shows, reading St. Thomas Aquinas, camping, road trips, and talking to my family

Why I’m at Ablaze: There is no other reason besides the undeniable fact that the Lord brought me here. Through Ablaze, I have learned so much about youth ministry, navigating difficult situations, leading worship, daily prayer, and countless other things. I have enjoyed being a missionary for these many years, and I am passionate about the mission of Ablaze. I am here to spread a zeal for souls to all Christians, and in a special way, the youth.
