BAS – Outdoor Education & Recreation – University of Minnesota-Duluth
I was raised in a small community in Southern Wisconsin by parents who were always active in the outdoors, and who instilled in me a deep love for nature through camping, hiking, canoeing, and cross country skiing at Devil’s Lake State Park and along the Wisconsin River. I gave my life to Christ when I was 16, but my relationship with Him began to mature as a freshman in college as I became active with Campus Crusade for Christ. During my summers, I was a wilderness guide for the Girls Scouts of America teaching young women how to sea kayak. It was through this season that God called me to reach His children through creation. From 2008 to 2010 I worked for various different environmental education centers and National Parks and Monuments. I was then called to Washington State to work as a sea kayak guide in the Puget Sound during the summers, and taught students about God through backpacking, winter camping, and by utilizing wilderness settings as a part of healing from addictions. I also served as a volunteer leader and mentor for young women in Young Life during my time on the Olympic Peninsula.
I came to SROM the summer of 2015 to work and serve as the Course Logistics Manager. I saw firsthand the amazing works of God in students’ lives through their time with SROM, from their first time at the building to witnessing the ways God changed them in the wilderness. God called me again to serve at SROM, only this time on full time staff! The work that I am doing is twofold: I am working as the Marketing Manager, training & mentoring our Summer Support Staff, and I assist our directors with administrative needs and projects as they arise. It is a lot, and I am always excited about the variety of projects I get to do for our students and God’s Kingdom!
I am seeking to be supported at a monthly total of $2500. This cost will allow for me to live and support both myself and my dog Lily. I would love for you to prayerfully consider walking alongside us both in this call to serve for God’s Glory at a monthly amount of $300, $200, $100, $50, $25, or any other monthly amount that you would willingly give!
These are a couple of big items that I will need to do this year in order to continue in the work God is calling me to. I would love if you would prayerfully consider partnering with me in this way to disciple men and women in the wilderness.
