My Story

    “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” – Mark 8:36

We are living in a time where people are frantically trying to find purpose and satisfy a deep unknown longing in their hearts. Even being raised in a loving household and with a great Catholic education, I found myself searching for my identity and purpose through worldly affirmation and achievement in different ways throughout my life. It wasn’t until I was left feeling tired and empty that I finally allowed myself to fall back on Jesus who had been patiently waiting the whole time. It was then, in the loving gaze of Jesus, that I found true joy and purpose. Our Lord created each person with deep intentionality and love. His heart aches to live in communion with every one of us and that communion is exactly where I found fulfillment.

As a missionary, my deepest desire is to bring every searching soul I encounter to the answer to our deep longing. Jesus Christ! Living in an intimate relationship with Jesus has transformed my life and has set my heart on fire to share this life-changing reality with others.
