Age: 22
Hometown: Sioux Falls, SD

Education:
I graduated from Augustana University this May, 2016, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Special Education and English as a New Language.

Why I'm working for MH: 
For a while now I knew that God had been asking me to step out in faith and become a missionary. In college the Lord pointed me towards elementary education. It's been amazing to see how God combined my love for teaching with my love for Him and the gospel. I want to have a passion for God's glory and a zeal for His people's salvation. I think that education really does have the power to change the world and when you combine that with a Christian education and an organization like Mission Haiti, you can't go wrong. After spending the month of January here in Haiti during college, I was thrilled when they offered me a teaching position. Through lots of prayer, I gladly accepted and am so happy to be here.
