Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students through FOCUS. I am serving as Team Director at The University of Alabama at Birmingham! My journey has been one heck of a ride, but I am sure enjoying the adventure.

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. My life is being transformed by Jesus every day. I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world.

As a college student at the University of Louisiana Lafayette, I lost myself and purpose in life when I started to get into the party lifestyle. I was trying to fill a void in my heart that could only be filled with the love of Christ.

My life quickly changed when I was introduced to Jesus Christ in the Eucharist through adoration and daily mass. I began to strive to be a person worthy enough of to receive Jesus in the Eucharist every day. 

Now, I am dedicated to bringing college women to come to know the truth that I have found in the Church and in the Eucharist.

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.
