Where I serve

The Lord has sent me to a land of sunshine at The University of Southern California! I can’t wait to serve the college students at USC for the 2020-2021 school year. Fight On!

My Story

I was baptized into the Catholic faith at the age of three and sent to a Catholic school growing up. I knew there was a lot to our faith that I didn’t know about, but I didn’t have the tools or the people to help me dig deeper. I went on retreats and mission trips throughout high school and my heart yearned for a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, but again, I didn’t know how to get there.

It wasn’t until college that I really discovered who Jesus Christ was on a personal level. I was filling my college days and nights with things of this world that I thought would make me happy. Things I thought would fulfill me - but I was still so empty. I had an opportunity to go to Ireland with FOCUS on a mission trip, and it was there that the Lord spoke deep into my heart. He told me that I was made for mission. I had never experienced so much peace, joy, and freedom knowing that truth. I then decided that I would spend the rest of my life serving others and showing them that a life following Christ and His commandments is a life that will set us free.

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 text or email me and I would be happy to grab coffee with you!
