My Story

Growing up, my faith was an important part of my life, but I was not living with it at the center. The faith foundation my parents set for my family led to me desiring Catholic community in college, where I experienced a deeper conversion. At George Mason University, I became more involved in my faith through FOCUS bible studies and was challenged to grow in virtue and holiness through discipleship with Christ.

Jesus pursued me so intentionally my senior year, placing on my heart the desire to serve Him more fully, and gently ordered my priorities by setting my heart on fire to help bring souls to Christ. It has been such a grace-filled, transformative first year on campus, I am so excited to continue to walk with MIT students in their journey to Heaven!

Your Impact

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 reach out to me at
