Where I serve

I'm excited to be serving at the University of Rhode Island this year!  It's a great campus full of about 15,000 students, many of whom are very open to diving deeper into their faith. Whether I am on campus, frequenting the local coffee shops, or at my house having tea, I've loved reaching out to the women here! 

My Story

I studied Communication Disorders for Speech Therapy when I went to college at Minnesota State University Mankato and fully expected to to go straight on to graduate school. My life looked perfect on paper but I was still missing something and desiring more. FOCUS missionaries reached out to me and helped me realize that my Catholic Faith was supposed to affect every area of my life and grow closer to Christ. I began to experience the joy of sharing the faith with my peers and was overcome with the realization that so many people are continuously pursuing the next accomplishment, looking for meaning that can only be found in Christ. Christ began to increase the desire in my heart to become a FOCUS missionary and I decided to commit to this mission. 

Your Impact

As a FOCUS missionary, I am following the footsteps of the apostles' radical method of evangelization, including reliance on the body of the Christ for spiritual and financial support. I am able to be on campus because of the generosity of many. I've loved being able to be in contact with my mission partners and share stories of the amazing things God has been doing on campus. I would love to have you join my support team. If you are interested, let me know the best way to contact you and I will schedule an appointment with you. I would love to share more with you about Christ's mission for my life and the New Evangalization!
