Where I serve

I serve in the great state of California at San Jose State University! Being here is a blessing and honor, and I’m so excited to be with these students! Go Spartans!

My Story

I grew up Catholic and attended Catholic school from kindergarten to my senior year of high school. Despite being raised in the faith, I didn’t have much personal relationship with Jesus. I followed the Church’s teachings and lived in a state of “going through the motions” when living out my faith. Once I reached college, I struggled to discover where I belonged and felt lost. I started putting my time and energy into school because I saw how much I could excel in that part of my life. Soon enough, I had put my whole worth and identity into academics and lived a very isolated life.

You can only imagine how well that lasted before I realized how empty my life was. I wasn’t sure what to do or where to go, but a missionary on my campus reached out to me. She saw me wearing a FOCUS Greek shirt and decided to come and talk to me. That was the first time I encountered a missionary, and after our conversation, I decided to do something about the emptiness I felt. Some friends asked me to audition for the Praise and Worship choir, so I did. And through that small yes, I started to see, know, and love my faith. From there, the Lord seemed to fill my life with many graces and I started developing a real relationship and friendship with the Lord. This personal encounter with Jesus has brought me so much freedom, happiness, and fruitfulness, including my yes to FOCUS.

This past year has been full of so much growth that words cannot describe it. Jesus has changed my life, and I cannot imagine living in a world without Him. I’m so blessed to be called to this life, and I can only hope that the students and women I encounter will hear the call, too.

Your Impact

God called me to be His missionary, and with that comes the decision to rely on mission partners both spiritually and financially. With your gracious and generous donations, I can invest in the lives of students the same way I was invested in. I would love to walk this journey with you to fulfill the Lord’s great commission! If you would like to partner with me, please let me know how I can reach you! I would love to schedule an appointment and would be honored to share this mission with you!
