Where I serve

This is now my 4th year with FOCUS!  After 3 years of serving as an on-campus missionary at the University of Mary, Mary College at ASU, and Winona State University, God has called me on to other adventure with the FOCUS Alumni Mobilization Team.  This team serves about 30,000 former missionaries and students as they enter their next phase of life.  FOCUS has always wanted to build up life long Catholic missionary disciples, and that's exactly what this team gets to do!  We’re visiting them, listening to what’s working well, and connecting them with each other to be on mission together.     


My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. 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 His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world. I've been constantly amazed by the different souls I've encountered on campus.

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.
