Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students! I'm super excited to serve at the University of Southern Indiana. You'll typically find me hanging out at the university cafe or high-fiving people around campus. I have a pretty cool story about how Jesus has changed my life -- I think you should hear it sometime! Come find me and I'd love to share it with you. :)

My Story

Until late in my college years, the amount of time I spent thinking about God was confined to the two minutes before I fell asleep and at Mass on the weekends. I had absolutely no grasp of the concept of having a relationship with Jesus Christ and of having Him be an active member of my life. Nine months before I graduated, I entered a season of Lent that the Lord used to give me a deep desire to come to know Him, even though I couldn’t describe it at the time. A few days later, the Holy Spirit gave me the space to understand this when He introduced me to a FOCUS bible study. The women I met there were on fire with the Lord's love in a way that I'd never known, and I knew immediately that they had in their lives what I'd been searching for in mine. 

In the months following, I began to dive deeper into my faith at the Newman center on campus. FOCUS gave me a community to grow in my faith and taught me about living and loving like Christ. I became a missionary to help others find God and grow in relationship with Him in the same way that FOCUS helped me.

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.
