I am a 2nd year missionary serving at Benedictine College in Kansas! As a former collegiate athlete, I have the opportunity to serve with Varsity Catholic which aims at investing in the student athletes on campus.
I grew up Catholic and in high school, I had a radical encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist! The Gospel pierced my heart in a new way and the Lord invited me to follow Him. He invited me to visit Him every week in our adoration chapel and I could only say YES! It was before Him in the Eucharist that I learned how to pray, to listen, and be led by Christ. I fell in love. I had never felt more at peace and loved in my entire life and I wanted nothing more but to live my life entirely for Christ. Through prayer, the Lord cultivated a desire in me to share this joy of Christ with others.
Because of this, I went to college on a mission to bring souls to Christ. I became a leader in Campus Ministry, led Bible studies and retreats, invested in women one-on-one, and invited them to the Sacraments with me. Through this time in college, my desire for the Lord and mission grew like a wild-fire.
This led me to pursue my masters in Theology at Ave Maria University as a Grad-Assistant coach for the Women’s Soccer team. The head coach, Tyler Rosser, was a FOCUS VC missionary prior to coaching and he taught me the little way of evangelization. I was blown away by the impact it had on our team and I wanted more. And that is how I came to be a FOCUS missionary.
This past year has been so blessed by the Lord as I get to witness and be an instrument of the Holy Spirit to bring Jesus to others on campus. There is no greater joy than sharing the Love of my life with others that I love. Please pray for me and all the women I walk with as we continue to fall deeper in love with Jesus and share Him and the Good News of eternal Life with others.
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.
