Where I serve

I serve as a campus missionary at Iowa State University!

My Story

I started school at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln in the fall of 2015. Four years later I graduated with a college degree and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The Newman Center had FOCUS missionaries present and my sorority Gamma Phi Beta had a bible study.

I joined the bible study in Gamma Phi, met friends who knew Jesus as a person, and learned how to pray after spending many late nights sitting in the pews of Saint Thomas Aquinas. And after four years my heart was transformed from being loved by Jesus Christ and learning about the truth of the Catholic faith. And after knowing a joy that this world cannot give I could not help but share that joy with everyone around me. 

I started leading a bible study in Gamma Phi Beta, said yes to becoming a disciple of Christ and living out Jesus' mission too. College changed my life because I was introduced to having a relationship with Christ. But it will also change my husband's life, my friend's life, my children's life, and everyone else around me. That is why I said yes to serving as a FOCUS missionary after I graduated. Now I have the wonderful opportunity to work with college students full-time to teach them how to have a relationship with Christ and evangelize everyone else in their lives too!

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.
