Where I serve

God has greatly blessed me!  I served my first two years with FOCUS at Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas.  I served my second two years as the Team Director at Baylor University in Waco, Texas.  I am now on an adventure to Southampton, England where I will lead the first FOCUS team in the UK at the University of Southampton!  

My Story

Growing up, I attended Catholic schools and went to Mass on Sundays with my family. Although I was "doing" all of the right things, my faith was not personal or meaningful to me.  During my sophomore year of college, I met a FOCUS missionary who was living out her faith in a way that I had never seen before. She had a joy and peace that was so contagious! It wasn't long before I realized that this joy came from knowing Jesus in a real and personal way.  It was by witnessing her love for Christ and His Church that lead my heart to desire a relationship with Jesus and to share Him with as many as I can!

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.
