Where I serve

Time for Round 3!! I am excited to share that I am heading into my third year as a FOCUS Missionary. My first two years were served at the University of Maine and as the Team Director at Florida Atlantic University. Now, I am heading back up the east coast to serve as the Team Director at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga. I am so excited to be serving at this beautiful university not too far from my family! 

My Story

“He must increase, but I must decrease.” (John 3:30) These words have pierced my heart for the past few years. 

After graduating with my BSN from Kennesaw State University, I began working in a pediatric ER. Being a nurse, it is essential to put aside oneself in order to serve patients. How humbling it was- to care for the sick, the injured, and the sorrowful. My formation as a nurse gave me an up close view of the suffering going on in our world. And slowly, Jesus has revealed to me the need for more faithful disciples- His need for our love, His desire for us to trust him with all things, and His endless extension of mercy towards us.

In this conviction, I discerned a new adventure the Lord was drawing me into, by serving as a missionary with FOCUS (Fellowship of Catholic University Students). What a joy it has been- to be in the business of not only saving lives, but also saving souls!
