Where I serve

God has called me to serve at the University of Nebraska Omaha this school year- Go Mavericks! Jesus has transformed my life and has given me newfound hope and joy when I used to be reliant on the things of this world. In serving with FOCUS, I only hope to be a vessel for the Lord to work in and through me as I encounter the women of UNO. Read below to see why I said yes to serving with FOCUS!

My Story

Growing up in a Catholic home, I learned about God but I did not know how to have relationship with Him. After getting confirmed in the Catholic church, my priorities were focused on becoming the best athlete I could be- which allowed me to play collegiate volleyball at a nationally ranked program. However, soon I found myself on the bench my first two seasons and fell into the belief that I had no value. Fast forward to 2020, the combination of the pandemic and the loss of one of the most influential people in my life led me to fall into a season of great emptiness. My soul began to hunger for something deep and meaningful but I didn’t know what that was. As it turned out it wasn’t a “what” but a “who.” Jesus! Through the encounter of a FOCUS missionary who met me where I was at in life and became an authentic friend, I began to thirst for the life she modeled- one with Christ at the center.
