Where I serve

I will be serving at the United States Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut! It is a great honor to serve these cadets, who will go on to serve our nation by ensuring the safety, security, and stewardship of our water. I am excited to be a part of their faith journey as they go on to save lives (literally and spiritually). Through my role I hope to show them the joy of having a personal relationship with Christ as well as how that can inform and inflame their call to serve our nation.

My Story

I was raised cradle Catholic until my junior year of high school when I took the faith as my own. I had an amazing encounter with our Lord on a family camping trip that made me realize I wanted to spend the rest of my life for Him. I wasn’t sure what that was going to look like, so I decided to teach English abroad. This would lead me on adventures that brought me in and out of European Catholic churches. I returned to Cal State Long Beach where I encountered FOCUS for the first time. I sought out the missionaries and was able to see the impact they had on the students on our campus. I realized how moved my heart was to serve my fellow college students through this time of independence and loneliness.

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the commitment to rely on the prayerful and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. This opportunity to trust in the Lord’s providence and generosity is humbling but very fulfilling. 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.
