Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at Brown University. You'll typically find me with a cup of coffee in hand, hanging out around the Newman center or spending quality time with students. Jesus radically changed my life simply through His gaze in the Eucharist -- I'd love to share my story with you sometime! Come find me at the local coffee shop or chapel and I'd love to share it with you. :)

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is for students to encounter the loving gaze of Jesus Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus and His gaze through the Eucharist and I would love nothing more than to bring the gaze of the Beloved to students and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel, also known as Jesus' love story with them. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us where we are at, 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 personal and intentional relationships with college students, walking with them through their time on campus, I desire to love them as Christ does. College students desire to be seen, known, and loved and I desire to share with them the only one who can satisfy the desire of their hearts. 

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.
