Where I serve

I have been called to serve at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA. Whether I'm meeting students on grounds or working at the beautiful Catholic Center, I feel incredibly blessed to serve at such a wonderfully unique school. UVA has a strong Catholic community and it is my privilege to join a team of courageous missionaries and impossibly brilliant students. Wahoowa!



My Story

During my undergraduate career at the University of Colorado at Boulder, I was quite sure that God was not calling me to be a FOCUS missionary. As many of us find at varying points in our lives, however, I was doing everything I could to run away from God's call. I wanted to follow the path that I was laying out for myself, law school, job security, importance, etc; making evangelization a priority was not part of my agenda. 

My faith was deeply impacted in my senior year of college through the investment of FOCUS missionaries in my life. These men shared their very selves with me and allowed me to share my story with them. This relationship forever changed my life, providing the catalyst for my calling into mission work.

Postponing law school and joining FOCUS has been the greatest decision of my life thus far, as it allows me to truly live in the present and focus on the greatest work that I could do, to bring others to know the faith that has so deeply and irreversibly transformed me. 


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 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.
