Hi! My name's Emma. I'm a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

I am a Program Director for the East Area of FOCUS, helping to serve nearly 200 missionaries on 43 college campuses from Virginia to Maine. After serving for two years as a missionary on campus (at George Mason and Columbia), I now work as a missionary to the missionaries. As a Program Director, I help with regional strategy, missionary formation, hiring new missionaries, Team Director promotion, regional gatherings, and staff care. I loved my time working with students directly, and I am so grateful that God continues to call me to serve this mission, now in a greater capacity.

My Story

I was a freshman at the University of Pittsburgh when I met a FOCUS missionary who changed my life. My faith transformed from a box I checked off each week to the most important relationship I have. Through the witness of the FOCUS missionaries and the support of a vibrant Catholic community at Pitt, I fell deeply in love with Jesus and His Church and soon felt the call to missionary life. Through small group Bible studies, one-on-one mentorships, and countless coffee dates, I have been privileged to encounter many young women in their walk of faith.

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. God has blessed me with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I served on campus and now in a regional role. 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. May God bless you!
