Where I serve

The Lord has invited me to begin my third year serving at The University of Central Oklahoma. Roll ‘Chos! It has been the greatest gift to witness mission unfold on this campus since we arrived in August 2021. I believe God has amazing things in store for this third year!

My Story

I was raised in the Catholic faith by a loving and supportive family. My parents prioritized Sunday Mass each week and my mom taught me to pray from a young age. My faith began to thrive in college when I had a life-changing experience with the Catholic community at the University of Illinois. I became convicted of my identity as a beloved daughter of God and of the need for faithful leaders within the Church. I knew I desired to walk with women as they grew in their relationship with Jesus and to teach them to be joyful witnesses of the Gospel. I was overjoyed to accept a position with FOCUS my senior year of college, and I am so thankful to have spent the past two years investing in women in Oklahoma.

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.
