I will be serving my first year as a FOCUS missionary at the Auraria Campus in Denver Colorado. You will be able to find me playing all sorts of recreational sports around campus as well as running with students, helping out at sporting events, and hanging out with my incredible teammates throughout the year. I cannot wait to see all the beautiful people I am bound to meet, to share my journey with Christ and hear all their stories about how Christ has impacted them. Please feel free to reach out and we will be able to share our stories with one another!
As a missionary, I hope to help everyone discover just how prevalent Christ is in their lives. I never formed a true relationship with Christ growing up, and fell away from the faith in high school. During my last year attending Mount Saint Mary’s University, the FOCUS missionaries on campus kept me close and reintroduced me to the faith and that drastically changed my relationship with Christ. I found that happiness cannot be found in the material world, but is actually in accepting Jesus and allowing Him to change my heart. I feel so blessed to be given the opportunity to help save those who are in a similar situation that I was in by showing them how Christ has truly changed my life to its core. The virtues I picked up from being a Division 1 runner has granted me the graces to be able to seek out athletes who have also fallen away from the faith as I continue as a Varsity Catholic missionary. As a athlete, I understand the temptations that can pull one away from their faith so I am excited to show the student-athletes how they can pursue an even more excellent athletic career centered around Christ. I pray that my own story will be a beacon of light for those who lost their way, and that I may walk along side them back to Christ’s arms. I cannot wait to see all the beautiful souls I will encounter on my journey in Denver. I cannot wait to meet each and every single one of you. Thank you for your time, and God bless!
