Where I serve

This year the Lord has called me to serve at the campus of Wichita State University in Wichita, Kansas! I get to be at this campus with four other AMAZING missionaries and cannot wait to see what the Lord does for and through us. As they say at WSU “Go Shockers!” I’ve got a fun story of how the Lord has shown Himself in my life, find me and I’d love to tell you about it!


My Story

I grew up in a Catholic home, but on a more-so intellectual level. I didn’t know what it meant to have a deep and personal relationship with Christ. As the oldest of 5, I felt that it was important to know more to help make a path for my younger siblings.

Coming to college it wasn’t the highest priority to be super involved at our Newman Center. Covid was just sort of ending and so it made it easy to only go to the things I wanted. Within the first few weeks of school I got so wrapped up in classes, work, and having a schedule that I got to make, that I slowly realized that I was not living a life that I strived to show anyone. I had been going to a bible study irregularly but felt that I was lying about where I was truly at in my faith. That summer I decided that I truly wanted a deeper encounter with our Lord and became a diocesan missionary, traveling to different parishes each week teaching catechism classes to 1st-12th grade students. That summer I really did begin to build a true relationship with the Lord. Coming back to school I met a former campus missionary who worked remotely still for FOCUS and we became really good friends. She showed me that it is possible to have an even deeper relationship with Christ. My junior year we got three full time FOCUS missionaries on campus and I didn’t hesitate to join a bible study and begin discipleship with one of them. Throughout the last two years she showed me not only authentic friendship but also what Divine Intimacy is and how to live it well.

I had the opportunity to lead a bible study during my last year of college and learned so much, not only how to be a more effective leader, but also how to meet girls where they are at and walk with them in their own personal knowing who Christ is. I am so excited to take what I have learned from missionaries that have come before me, and walk with students at Wichita State University!

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. I’ve been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I’d be honored to share this mission with you.

“Some give by going to the missions. Others go by giving to the missions. Without both, there are no missions.” -Saint John Paul II
