Where I serve

I am excited to serving my first year on mission at East Carolina University! Go Pirates!

My Story

Growing up in the Catholic faith, I attended Mass every Sunday and received the sacraments but never really practiced my faith on my own.

After coming to Clemson, I was quickly swept into the typical college lifestyle. It wasn’t until the end of my freshman year when I deeply encountered Jesus in a bible study that I wanted to make a change in my life. I desired to give myself fully to Him, but I continued to live one foot in and another foot out. 

At the end of sophomore year, I met a FOCUS missionary. She patiently walked alongside me and became a tangible example of the way Jesus loves me. I became more convicted of Jesus’ presence in the Eucharist and the importance of the Mass the next year. The Lord has so beautifully transformed my life and His desire to continue to love me intimately is what allowed me to say “yes” to serving on mission with FOCUS!

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.

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. Thank you!
