“I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly.”

John 10:10

Where I serve

I am migrating south to serve at the University of Dallas!

My Story

The Catholic faith has always been a very present reality in my life, but as I grow older, the Lord continues to draw me closer into His heart. Throughout middle school and high school, I was actively involved in Regnum Christi, which is where I first learned what it meant to have a personal relationship with Christ and where I first fell in love with mission work. When the pandemic closed the churches, I ironically started going to daily Mass. Then attending Franciscan University, the Lord provided for me overabundantly by blessing me with the deepest friendships that taught me about His immense love for me.

Though my time in college was not perfect, I know that I was extremely blessed to have had such a fruitful college experience. This is not the case for many college students, though. I have witnessed first hand how those around me have lost their faith because they had no one to walk with them in college or in life. As much as this hurts my heart, I know it pains the Lord even more. So after seeing and experiencing the impact FOCUS has had on myself and others while I was at Summer Projects in Maine, I answered His call to serve as a missionary to college students.


“Father, they are your gift to me. I wish that where I am they also may be with me, that they may see my glory that you gave me.”

John 17:24

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. 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!
