“I give thanks to my God at every remembrance of you, praying always with joy in my every prayer for all of you, because of your partnership for the gospel from the first day until now.”
Philippians 1: 3-5

Where I serve

UGA Team PhotoI am so excited to begin serving at the University of Georgia with an amazing team in a community full of incredible men and women eager for the truth and love of Christ. I can’t wait to be changed by encountering the living God in each and every one of them!

My Story

From a young age, I was immersed in the beauty of the Catholic faith. I attended Catholic school for a few years, was blessed with a good family, and given a solid faith foundation. For most of my life, I knew a lot about Christ, but I didn’t truly know him. So when I stepped onto campus as a little freshman at the University of Louisiana Lafayette, I didn’t know who I was, I had a deep thirst for more, and I wasn’t sure what to do with it.

I began to get involved with the Ragin’ Cajun Catholics at my Newman center on campus, and it was the start of a major transformation the Lord was working in my life. I began attending retreats, small groups, and—for the first time—had good Catholic friendships. Through prayer, formative community, and walking in discipleship with the FOCUS missionaries, the Lord gave—and is continuing to give—me a new heart.

I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.

Ezekiel 36: 26

This past year, I’ve had the privilege of serving at retreats and on mission trips and walking with some incredible women in discipleship. The Lord is continuing to transform my heart through these encounters and has invited me to take part in his plan for at least the next two years as a FOCUS missionary!

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. Through your financial and spiritual support, we can engage students at a critical time in their lives to understand in a deeper way who they are and the purpose of their lives. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I’d be honored to share this mission with you! You can email me at [email protected]

If you are a student at UGA and want to get connected, are looking to join a bible study, or have any questions, please reach out! You can email me at [email protected] or find me on campus at the Catholic Center.
