Where I serve

After graduating from The University of Texas at Austin where I studied Human Development and Family Science, the Lord asked me to trade in my burnt orange for crimson and cream. I am overjoyed to be serving in my second year as a FOCUS missionary at the University of Oklahoma! 

My Story

When I went to college, I knew that I wanted faith to be part of my life but I wasn't quite sure what that would look like. As I began to come around the Catholic Center, I met a girl named Emily. There was something different about Emily...she had a joy that I had never witnessed before and I wanted a taste of it. What began as a simple greeting after Mass, turned into a friendship that changed the trajectory of my life. Emily taught me the art of living a life joyfully rooted in Christ, showed me the beauty of the teachings of our Church, and walked with me as I began to fall in love with our Lord. 

College is a time when young people make some of the biggest decisions of their lives - what career they will have, who they want to become, what they are passionate about, and whether or not they will live a life of faith. Our college campuses are in need of more individuals like Emily who will zealously step into the lives of other people and lead them to a relationship with Jesus. This is why I am a FOCUS missionary.

As a full-time missionary, I have the honor of journeying with college women and introducing them to the person of Christ. Constantly, I am filled with hope for the young generation of Catholics and future leaders of our world!

Your Impact

When I answered the call to serve God through FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners. It is a delight to invite people to come on mission with me. Please contact me if you are interested in learning more about how you can join me on this mission to lead college students to a life with Christ!
