Where I serve

I am very excited to say that I will be serving my first year as a FOCUS missionary at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh!! I will be on a team with three other missionaries this upcoming year, Sarah, Joey, and Kyle. I am also a part of Varsity Catholic which means that I will be doing a lot of outreach to student athletes! 

My Story

My Catholic faith has always been a part of my life, but it was not always the center of my life. When I got to college and started getting involved at the Newman Center my view of Jesus and the church was changed dramatically. Everyone had a sense of joy that I desired and after talking to several students that attended the Newman, I learned that the way to obtain that joy was to come to know Jesus. So I began to pray and go to Mass daily as well as frequenting the sacrament of confession. It was through my experience of going back to confession after almost 2 years of not going that I encountered the love of Jesus for the first time. Ever since then I have been striving to grow closer to our Lord and savior which led to me becoming a missionary.   

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.
