Where I serve

I will be serving at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee for my first year as a missionary.

Please pray for me, the students, and my fellow FOCUS missionaries (Shannon, Max, and Haley).

My Story

I am from a small town in eastern Kentucky called Pikeville. I graduated from the University of Kentucky in 2023 and it was there that I fell away from the Faith. However, it was also there that I encountered faithful Catholics and FOCUS missionaries who lead me to have a personal encounter with Jesus Christ. It was within this Christian community that I was built up in my faith and began to lead others as well. I decided to join FOCUS to help more students encounter Christ and I am excited to walk with young people and witness how God works in their lives.

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. I’ve been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus. 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.
