Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. You'll typically find me hanging out at the university cafe, at the Newman Center, leading Bible studies or praying with students. I have a pretty cool story about how Jesus has changed my life -- I think you should hear it sometime! Come find me and I'd love to share it with you. :)

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and to introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. I recently graduated from Boston College and like many college students, I struggled to discover who I was and where I was going. I chased towards fleeting moments of happiness, comfort, and security that never satisfied the deepest longings of my heart. 

By the grace of God, Boston College's Jesuit education challenged me spiritually and inspired me to search for a deeper meaning in my life. In my search, I encountered FOCUS missionaries and I was immediately struck by their unique joy and unwavering faith in Christ.  They became my friends and lovingly showed me what it's like to know Christ and have a relationship with Him. Just like Jesus walked side by side with His disciples, the missionaries invested in me and invited me into discipleship, to conferences and to a mission trip to Peru. These experiences opened my eyes to the beautiful reality beyond this earthly life and our universal call to holiness. In Christ, I found my identity as a beloved daughter of God, truth that set me free, and an unfailing love that my heart was aching for. In the midst of the stress, uncertainty, and loneliness that students experience in college, Jesus patiently waits for a chance to be allowed into their hearts and to transform their lives, and this is the Good News I share with students!

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.
