I’m currently serving with the Young Adult Volunteer program through the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A) in Albuquerque, NM. From August 2018 to July 2019, I have been invited to serve alongside this community as together we work towards a more peaceful and just world. Check out my blog posts to read about what I’ve been up to!

What is the Young Adult Volunteer Program? “The Young Adult Volunteer (YAV) program is an ecumenical, faith-based year of service in sites around the world and across the United States. YAVs accompany local agencies working to address root causes of poverty and reconciliation while exploring the meaning and motivation of their faith in community with peers and mentors.”

How can you help?    There are three important ways you can support me throughout this year of service: by praying for me and the people whom I will live and serve this year, your interest in my year of service by reading my blog, and your financial gifts. For more information, please read through my blog posts or contact me directly.

You may give online HERE through the sidebar that reads “Give Online.” Please include my name and the YAV program in the comments section
