Where I serve

I will be a second-year missionary at ­­­­­the Colorado School of Mines for this upcoming year!! Jesus has done some pretty crazy things in my life to get me to this point and I would love to tell you about it! All roads led to being an engineer immediately after graduation from CU Boulder. However, Jesus had very different plans to build up His Kingdom!

My Story

I have grown up in a very devout Catholic family my entire life. I have had the privilege to get a Catholic education kindergarten through 12th grade by my parents' generosity and love. I was able to have a strong faith life at home, but was nervous how college might affect that.  However, it wasn’t until college that I began to realize that I needed to share my faith. Through my time at CU-Boulder, I had the privilege to be discipled by three awesome FOCUS missionary men and surrounded by an incredible community. My faith took off and now I get a chance to share it full-time in the years to come!!

Your Impact

As a missionary, I will strive to grow in my relationship with Christ through daily prayer, studying Scripture, participating consistently in the Sacraments, and continually practicing virtue. In this way, I hope to be a real and true model of how to follow Christ and give witness to His joy and love to the people I encounter. I will walk with them on our journey towards the God who loves us unconditionally.

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. It makes me incredibly happy to be able to invite you into this mission. I pray you'll join me as the Lord seeks to transform the college campus and ultimately the world.
