I am from St. Louis, MO, and I stumbled across TEAM while searching “missions organizations” on Google during my last year of grad school in 2017-18. I was trying to figure out what to do with my life and couldn’t deny a strong tug on my heart toward international missions. About 5 months later I was appointed as a missionary with TEAM! In May of 2019 I moved to N. Ireland to work alongside an organization called Salt Factory Sports. Sports have always been a huge part of my life, and God has used them to transform my heart in a lot of ways. Getting the opportunity to use sport as an avenue to share the gospel in N. Ireland was such a perfect fit for me. I was thriving but also growing more than I could ever imagine.
In March of 2020 I had to end my mid-term assignment in N. Ireland early due to visa issues and COVID-19, so I am back in St. Louis. I am now working for TEAM stateside as a Resources Intern for the Mobilization, Advancement and Church Engagement Departments. My heart for advocating for the global church and missions has grown tremendously over the last few years, so I am beyond excited to have this opportunity to learn, grown and share my gifts in this way!
