Where I serve

I am a fourth year missionary serving on the Alumni Team! After serving 3 years in Boston, I felt like it was time to transition away from campus ministry and start investing in our alumni. After leaving campus, thousands of students & missionary alum enter into parishes across the country and I'm striving to help them continue living mission as they create Catholic culture wherever they land! 

My Story

I grew up in North Carolina and attended NC State University where I quickly became involved in the Catholic Campus Ministry organization. Throughout my time on campus I was very involved. I served our campus ministry and took on leadership roles in other student organizations around campus. 

My freshman year of college was very difficult adjusting to life away from home in addition to some unexpected life changes that happened that year. There is no way I would have been able to get through the year without the support of my friends, especially those in my campus ministry. Bible studies were a huge part of keeping my faith while in college and giving me a solid community of friends to lean on. I have been so blessed to walk with more than 45 women in Bible studies over the past few years. I had the chance to know and love each of them and will miss being with them at Boston University!

The summer before my senior year of college, I was interning across the country and felt like I had finally figured out my path post-graduation. Everything was lining up and going exactly according to my plans. That was until someone introduced me to FOCUS. While FOCUS wasn’t part of my “plan” I realized how much I had been putting my will above God’s will. Rather than feeling anxious thinking about my future, I finally felt at peace.  Joining FOCUS has been one of the best decisions of my life!

Your Impact

Please join me on this mission! As students and missionaries leave the college campus they are entering into parishes across the country. Our team is helping these alumni to transition well; so they can use the skills they learned on campus to help bring Christ to those around them- whatever their vocation or job may be! I have put my trust in the Lord that He will provide while I am doing missionary work. I ask that you please consider joining my missionary support team in whatever way you can. Please prayerfully consider joining the mission through financial support or through your prayers. Please contact me at [email protected] to set up an appointment to talk about you how you can help continue to invest in our FOCUS alumni across the country.

"Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age." Mt 28:19-20
