Where I serve

The Lord has been so generous during my time as a missionary and I can not wait to see what He has in store for my 5th year as I serve as the Team Director at Western Kentucky University!  

I ve been so blessed by the spiritual Fathers I have encountered on mission! Please continue to pray for all of our priests and religious! 

My Story

I was very fortunate to be raised in a Catholic household where praying the rosary, family prayer each night, and going to Sunday Mass were as normal as spending our week nights at the ball field! 

By the time I went to college, I thought I knew everything there was to know about my faith and wasn’t looking to change anything about it. This little bubble of thought was quickly popped my freshman year when I attended SEEK2015 and realized that being Catholic meant so much more than just getting A’s on your religion test and going to Mass because that is what your family was doing but meant having a personal and real relationship with God. I came back from that conference wanting my life to be changed and to grow in my faith, but having no idea where or who to turn to!

Thankfully Jesus gave me some great women to walk with me as I learned even more about my faith and built a personal relationship with Jesus! Through these relationships and bible studies, I realized that my relationship with Jesus was not just for me, but meant to be shared with others and help guide them toward Heaven! 

When the time came to decide what I would do after graduation, I knew saying “YES” to what Jesus had planned would give me more joy, peace, and adventure than I could ever imagine so I said “YES” to being a FOCUS Missionary! 

Your Impact

Saying “YES” to being a FOCUS missionary meant I was saying yes to relying on God and others to make this mission a reality! My time on staff would not have been possible without the prayers and financial support of others and I am so grateful for the ways I have been able to serve thanks to people like you! If you are interested in partnering with me or just want to hear more about life on mission, please feel free to contact me at [email protected]! I would be honored to share this mission with you!
