Hi! I'm a FOCUS missionary at the University of South Alabama.

Where I serve

I am very excited to share that I will be serving at the University of South Alabama in Mobile, Alabama again this year.

My Story

Going to college I knew that I would go to Mass on Sundays but I didn’t know how central my faith would become to my life and my time at Virginia Tech. I am so thankful for the people who reached out and invested in me to help me grow. I joined a small faith sharing group for the first time, attended retreats, went to daily Mass, and it all grew from there. I am now actively living out the faith that I always understood. Now God has called me to serve other college students in a similar way. I get to show God's love to the students on campus and help them to grow in their relationship with God in such a pivotal time in their lives.

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. 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. I've been constantly amazed by the different souls I've encountered on campus.

Your Impact

I can’t live out this mission alone. I am so blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life supporting me as I go out to campus. Your prayers and financial support make this all possible and I am so thankful. I am so excited to invite you into this mission with me, let me know the best way to contact you and I would love to meet up and share more information about opportunities to invest in the college students on campus by supporting this mission.

Know, Love and Serve God

We encounter God in an intimate relationship through daily prayer, the sacraments and the Scriptures.

Build Virtuous Friendships

By building genuine friendships, we meet students on a deeper level.

Teach Others to Share Christ

We teach students how to share the gospel, who in turn teach other students how to pass it on …
