Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at Northwestern State University in Louisiana! My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. 

My Story

I was born and raised Catholic; however I didn't have a relationship with God besides just going to mass on Sundays. I attended Texas A&M University for my undergraduate and it was there where I first encountered our Lord through the joy of the students at St. Mary's. Their joy was coming from the relationship they had with our Lord. I also desired to have that intimate relationship, so I asked Jesus be at the center of my life and lead to wherever He needed me.  

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. When I was Eucharistic minister at my College Catholic Center it brought me joy to be able to share Jesus in living flesh with other students. That is what sparked my interest to bring God to others through His gospel message and authentic friendship.


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. As Mother Teresa once said, "some give by going, others go by giving." If you are interested in going on mission with me by giving, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I would be honored to share this mission with you.
