“Christ has no body now on earth but yours, no hands, no feet but yours. Yours are the eyes with which Christ looks out his compassion to the world. Yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good. Yours are the hands with which He is to bless us now.” ~ Teresa of Avila

Where I serve

I am currently serving my first year on staff at Clemson University. I will be working specifically with the women in Greek life. Please pray for my team and the students we will be serving. Go Tigers!

My Story

I was raised Catholic by my two wonderful parents and practiced my faith all through high school. Once in college, I became distracted by other things in life and while I still attended mass, my faith life took a major priority cut. It was not until a FOCUS missionary invited me to her bible study and intentionally invested in me, that I took a step back and re-evaluated what was important in life. I knew something had to change.

That year I spent many hours in the chapel repeating the same prayer “Jesus, transform my life, I give you my life” before I heard the Lord clearly tell me that I could not only choose Him in the chapel, but I must choose Him in my daily life. It became very clear the life changes He was asking of me.

The next year was filled with making some hard decisions and learning the joy and love of our Lord that comes through suffering trials. I fell more deeply in love with the Eucharist and encountering Jesus through the Sacrifice of the mass. The Lord indeed transformed my life, and my heart burns with the desire to spread the joy of the Gospel, the joy of our Lord Jesus Christ.

His will be done, always. God be praised, always.

Your Impact

My call to mission includes trusting fully on the Lord and relying on the help of others. Your support, financially and spiritually, is essential for my success on campus. I am so excited to share the fruits of this apostolate with you and bring you on this mission with me.
