“Father, they are your gift to me. I wish that where I am they also may be with me, that they may see my glory that you gave me, because you loved me before the foundation of the world.” – John 17:24

Where I serve

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. When I was in college at the University of Maryland, my life was transformed by Jesus through an invitation to a FOCUS bible study. Through authentic friendship with my bible study leader and those around me who practiced the Catholic faith, witnessing the sacraments, and the grace of God, I made the decision to become Catholic during my junior year! I am so grateful that FOCUS existed on my campus and a missionary invested in my bible study leader, who then invested in me so that I could have a relationship with Jesus. Because I have received an incredible amount of joy in knowing the Lord, I would love nothing more than to invest in students so that they may know this joy as well.

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. It is solely through the generosity of my mission partners that I will be able to serve students on campus, and I would be honored for you to join with me as I embark on this journey to serve souls! If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know and we can schedule an appointment. I would be honored to share this mission with you!
