Where I serve

I am blessed to be on my second year of mission at Ramapo College of New Jersey. Ramapo, otherwise known as The Po, is surrounded by beautiful greenery and is filled with incredible students in great need of our Lord. 

My Story

I entered into college with a desire to be amongst the Catholic community. Being born and raised Catholic was a great blessing throughout my life because I endured many challenges growing up in a divorced household. The Lord stayed by my side even in the darkest times in which I was angry and questioning why He would allow great suffering to occur in my life at a young age. But through my anger and sadness, Jesus placed people in my life who accepted me in my brokenness. My first few weeks at my undergrad, Towson University, Jesus placed the FOCUS missionaries in my path and I soon saw this light within them. I saw this joy in them that my heart was aching for. I immediately began spending time with them and now understand how they were modeling the way of the Christian life. I joined them in daily mass and time praying before Jesus in adoration, and Jesus began softening my heart and showing me His love. All I had to do was make time for Him, and He took care of the rest. Now as a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead students to Christ. Saying yes to Jesus and making Him the center of my life changed me forever, and 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, through deeply investing in a few and teaching them to do the same, and so forth. It is a great adventure being Christs full time missionary, and I hope you will chose to take part in the journey He has prepared for you. 

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. 

In Him,
