Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students with the Fellowship of Catholic University Students. During my first year I served at the University of Rochester in New York, and now I am going into my fourth year, and returning to the University of Cincinnati in Ohio with my teammates Anthony, Madison, and Tim!Go Bearcats! I'm grateful and amazed that the Lord has called me to this beautiful mission!

"Serve the Lord with laughter." St. Padre Pio


My Story

Picture this:

          Jesus looks at the cross and then looks at you!

                           "You're worth it," He says.

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.  I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world.

Jesus has impacted my life in ways that I can not describe. College is such a crucial time in our lives, and it's up to us whether or not to practice our Catholic faith in those four years. I graduated from Eastern Kentucky University, a non-FOCUS school but it was through meeting missionaries that my best friend and I brought a FOCUS bible study to our Newman Center, attended conferences, and went on mission trips!  In 2016, I had an incredible opportunity to go on a mission trip for a month and to spread God's endless love to the most generous, and loving people in Tanzania, Africa!  My relationship with God is forever growing each day,  I am so in love with Christ, He has poured His love into my soul, and its a burning flame that will never burn out! 

Your Impact

"God loves those who find joy in giving." St. Pope John Paul II

When I joined FOCUS, I also joined myself to Christ in a radical way by committing to fully fundraise my support and rely on His goodness even more. God has blessed me immensely with the most incredible Mission Partners who, quite literally, go on mission with me through their support.

I cannot do it without the generosity of people like you! If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. Contact me anytime at (859) 750-1385 or [email protected]
