Where I serve

It is such a joy to be joining the conference team at the Denver Support Center and be apart of the SEEK team! I am so excited to be apart of this amazing conference!

My Story

I grew up as a cradle catholic but didn’t make faith a priority for myself until I went to college. I went to Missouri State University and had a hard time getting my foot in the door at the Catholic Campus Ministry (CCM). Thankfully I had parents and a few friends that encouraged me to go and find community there.

Freshman year wasn’t easy, thought about transferring home to St. Louis to be closer to family but knew God had plans for me that I had no idea about. SEEK21 was online my freshman year and it was through that where I was told to challenge myself, that there will be goodness and opportunities that come from the trials. I told myself to give the rest of freshman year a chance, to go to holy hour, join a bible study, and be involved. Once I did that and started to form my relationship with Christ, I began to see the graces Christ had for me and love everything MSU had to offer.

During SEEK24 in my senior year of college, there was an immense feeling of gratitude for how the Lord led me through college. I had many ups and downs with my relationship with Christ, but I learned that when I would go back to Him, He was there, waiting for me with open arms. Through family, friends, and quiet moments in the chapel, I am always desiring to grow in my relationship with Jesus Christ and to surrender my life to Him. I cannot wait to see how the Lord continues to move my life through this mission and the thousands of people who get to encounter Him at SEEK25.
