Where I serve

God has called me to be a FOCUS missionary at Belmont Abbey College in Belmont, NC! I am so excited to cultivate deep friendships and share the transforming love of Christ with the students there. 

“Know that the greatest service that man can offer to God is to help convert souls.”

My Story

I was beyond blessed to have been raised in a Catholic household with faith education. However, it was not until I was in college that I truly understood what this meant. I learned that the faith is not just a Sunday activity or rules to be followed, but a relationship with the person of Jesus Christ and the only thing that satisfies the human heart. 

And how? It was by faith-filled leaders and friends on campus that invested in me, invited me, and lead by example that allowed me to see the beauty of the faith. In having these Christ-centered friendships, and regularly attending the sacraments with them, I experienced the love of Jesus in a real and personal way. Praise God! 

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. As my life has been transformed by Jesus, I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus own example to find the best method of reaching the world. I’ve been constantly amazed by the different souls I’ve encountered on campus, and each soul longing for Him.

Each soul is so in need of authentic friends and a community to point them toward the truth of who they are and what they are made for. As so many lack a joyful and faith centered support system, my response is “Here I am, Send me.” –Isaiah 6:8

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 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.

Some give by going to the missions. Others go by giving to the missions. Without both, there are no missions.  – Saint Teresa of Calcutta
