Where I serve

This East Coast gal is headed out west to serve the wonderful college students at the University of California, Berkeley! I'm super excited to meet, serve, minister to, and invest in this new community. God Bless & Go Bears! 

My Story

Even though my faith was important to me growing up, I had always kept it tucked neatly in the corner of the life. I had no idea what it meant to really live out and actually pursue my Catholic faith until I went to college, where I was blessed to meet some amazing people at Boston University’s Catholic Center. This incredible group of friends and mentors welcomed me joyfully not only into their own lives, but also into the life of the Church. Through prayer, retreats, bible studies, the sacraments, and many a meal together, these people loved me deeply and helped me begin to make sense of my longing for greater purpose. Simply put, these people changed my life because they consistently pointed me towards the one person who can truly know, best love, and fully satisfy me - Jesus Christ. 

"Greater love has no man than this, to lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to this same Christ, that they might develop a relationship with Him and come to accept the unfathomable love He has for each and every one of us. While I've always been passionate about so many different things - family, music, sports, academics, you name it - I've come to realize that the greatest gift I have been given is above all that of faith, and I want nothing more than to share that with others. I couldn't possibly have foreseen where the Lord would lead me, but it’s clear to me that God has used my post-grad years of working in the publishing industry and attending graduate school not only to continue to show me that my true identity is in being loved by Him, but also to ultimately invite me to more fully be myself by using my gifts in service of this profound truth - namely, to help others see themselves as they truly are, too. 

In His ministry on earth, Jesus did just this: He loved us so much that He humbled Himself to meet us on our level, took on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus’ own example as I embark on this mission on the college campus. If I can bring any ounce of the authentic conviction, community, hope, and peace that Christ has given me to the students whom I’ll encounter as a FOCUS missionary, count me in!

Your Impact

When I said yes to joining FOCUS, I also said yes to relying on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me on this journey. 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 absolutely honored to share this mission with you in order to to transform the college culture and so help others who don't yet believe in their own belovedness.
