Where I serve

This is my third year serving as a FOCUS campus missionary. The past two years I served at Boston University and now this year I am serving at the University of Maine Orono. The students at BU were wonderful but I'm excited to explore this new campus this year to find students who are working hard in their studies but also are striving to live a life with purpose in their search for love and truth. I'm excited to build new relationships and meet new incoming freshman. I hope to have the opportunity to work closely with athletes on campus this year and help them know that they are loved for who they are and not their talents. Great things are coming to Maine!

My Story

As a missionary, my role on campus is to love others like Jesus loves us. This is what happened when I was a college student at the University of Vermont. When I arrived my freshman year at the Catholic Center I was greeted by many lovely and friendly faces. One of the FOCUS missionaries invited me to come to the Ski Retreat in February and there is where I saw the beautiful love Catholics had with each other. After that she invested in me and shared with me how I could pray and actually have a personal relationship with Jesus. Because of her I am a missionary today and I hope to share the love she had for me to others on other college campuses. 

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.
