Where I serve

I serve college students at Western Connecticut State University in Danbury. I work to help the men on campus grow in their relationship with Christ as they strive to become the men God created them to be. As Team Director, I also have the exciting opportunity to serve my teammates Erin, Olivia, and Anjelo, as well as our chaplain Father Bruce.

My Story

I was born and raised Catholic, but my faith was just what I did on Sundays.  I never fully knew Jesus.  When I was a student at Temple University in Philadelphia, I got involved with the Newman Center.  Father Mahoney, my friends there, and a FOCUS missionary named Vince helped me to really encounter Jesus in prayer.  After an amazing experience of prayer on a spring break mission trip, I began praying every day and leading others in bible study.  This was so powerful for me that I wanted to become a FOCUS missionary to share the happiness I have experienced with others.

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.
