Where I serve

I am currently serving at the University of California at Berkeley. My apartment is approximately one block from the Newman Center here on campus, but we do get to spend 2-3 hours per day on campus!

My Story

Going into college, I invested so much of my identity in my own intellect, as well as relationships that I believed could completely make me completely happy. I struggled to find fulfillment in this, and as I slowly experienced a conversion back into the Catholic faith, I came to know that only Christ can truly fulfill me. My conversion back to faith would not have been possible if God had not worked through some incredible people in my life- including a former FOCUS missionary. The Lord keeps showing me how much deeper He loves me and desires for me to grow in love for Him as well as others. As a missionary, my greatest desire is for God to work through me to lead all students to fulfillment in Him. 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. In my experience, I know God has made people for close relationship with one another. I want to form close friendships with those I encounter on campus so that they can encounter the Gospel not just through the truth of what it is, but also through me as a model of a fraction of God's love for them. I want the Lord to work through me in bringing them to encounter Him, building them up in faith, and sending them to be models of His love and truth to others.

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.
