Where I serve
After serving in various roles for the past 7 years, I'm kicking off my 8th year with FOCUS by joining the West Area Team (pictured below).
Our team of 11 members serves 46 campuses spanning from Washington/Oregon/California to the Dakotas/Nebraska. My official title is "West Area Chief of Staff". I will be closely assisting our Area Director (Hilary) and the rest of the team in strategic planning, logistics, and driving our goals forward.
I am excited to bring my past experiences as a FOCUS Missionary, Regional Director, and Sr. Manager of Marketing to this team.
My faith was always important to me, but I started seeking it out more intentionally during my 2nd year of college. Shortly after that, I felt called to be a FOCUS missionary, even though I didn't know anything about FOCUS.
I went online and read FOCUS's "How to Lead a Bible Study" article and I immediately started leading a bible study on my campus. The bible study began with 4 women and it grew to 12 women by the end of the school year. One of those women ended up coming into the Catholic Church and I got to be her RCIA sponsor (she is also one of my best friends now!) I interviewed for FOCUS, and the rest is history.
During my 4-years on campus, I was blessed to mentor many amazing women, including 6 that decided to become full-time FOCUS missionaries after they graduated college.
We are all called to be on mission, but our roles may look different. We have missionaries on campus who are on the front lines of evangelization. My team is working to support these missionaries, especially in the West. You can help us make disciples by joining my financial support team. I continue to fundraise my salary so that FOCUS can expand our reach and impact more souls for Christ.
If you believe in our mission, please consider joining my financial support team! I am happy to set up a time to speak with you and share more about FOCUS and my specific role in it. Thank you for your prayers and support!
