I am currently serving as the Team Director at Loras College in Dubuque, IA! Go DuHawks!
My story is one of God’s providence and grace. Like many, I was raised Catholic, but the faith did not penetrate the seams of my life until my sophomore/junior year of high school. At that time, my club soccer team reached the pinnacle of success, but the strange thing was: I wasn’t happy. Through God’s providence and grace, my quest for happiness led me to Him. As I began to draw closer to the Lord in prayer and through the sacraments, my heart began to change. Not only was I becoming more and more convinced that the Catholic faith I had grown up with was actually true; I was also coming to know and experience that the God of the universe loved me. This love changed everything, and it set me on a different trajectory than I would have chosen for myself, but it’s been the greatest adventure!
As a FOCUS missionary, I have the privilege of encountering college students and journeying with them in the faith. However, my mission does not stop there. When I said “yes” to FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on others for spiritual and financial support. If you would like to accompany me on this journey and be a part of the work the Lord is doing on campus, please reach out! It would be an honor to meet you and to have your support on this great adventure!
