Where I serve

Our Lord has called me to serve FOCUS for a third year of mission, but this year my mission with the Catholic Church will look a little different. Jesus invited me to move to Denver, Colorado and work at FOCUS' Denver Support Center as an Internal Communications Specialist. I will work to better our organization's internal communications strategies so that we can have a more cohesive, efficient system of communicating across the nation. This impacts FOCUS greatly because we all must be on the same page as a missions organization to save souls for the Kingdom!  

My Story

I converted to Catholicism my freshman year of college at IUPUI (Indiana University-Purdue University, Indianapolis) and it all began with an invitation from a FOCUS missionary. I was invited into a simple Bible study that intrigued me and welcomed me from the beginning. After entering into RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) at my local parish, I came into full communion with the Catholic Church in April of 2015.

 From that moment on everything changed. I continued to fight for a deeper relationship with the Lord and there were many obstacles of the world that I encountered on the way throughout my next 3 years in college. But with the help of FOCUS missionaries and authentic friendship I was able to continue to purse Sainthood.

That is what I want to do with everyone that I encounter. Show them the radiant light of our Lord and invite them into a deeper relationship with Him.

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 over the phone or in person if you're in the area. I'd be honored to share this mission with you.
