Where I serve

The Lord has called me from Connecticut to Boston this upcoming year, where I am so excited to be serving alongside my new team on the campus of MIT- Massachusetts Institute of Technology!

My Story

After graduating college, I went on a mission trip to Washington D.C where I remember sitting before our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament telling him, ” Everyone needs to know that they can sit before Love Himself, more people need to know that you truly do exist in the Eucharist!” My heart became overwhelmed at the thought of how many people did not know this reality, That so many people did not know the Thirst of their creator for them!

I told Jesus ” You have full permission to wreck the plans I had set for myself post graduation, Let your will be done ” but I gave him 2 conditions. I told him ” Jesus you can do whatever you want with my life as long as I have daily access to you in the mass and I can set aside time for a daily holy hour each day. With that ,do with me what you want! ” echoing the Blessed Mothers FIAT in my heart.

And He took me up on my prayer, and made the path to FOCUS very clear and easy, setting aside my perfectly set plans to go to graduate school for speech pathology and took my hand and led me on a wild adventure as I said yes more and more to becoming a FOCUS missionary. Answering His call to be a FOCUS missionary has been the most joyous YES I have given Him , and this YES continues to bear fruit not just in my own persoanl life but in the life of so many people around me, especially the students I have the privilege of loving and leading towards Christ. Jesus continues to dazzle me each and everyday with His abundance and goodness.



Your Impact

None of this would be possible if it wasn’t for the generosity and prayers of my mission partners. I get to be the hands and feet on the college campus because of YOU! Each one of you get to part take in the building up of His kingdom by coming on mission with me in this way.

I would love to share this mission with you and have you join me on mission in this way!

Thank you so much for your prayers and generosity!
