Where I serve

God has called me to serve the college students at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia. While I'm on campus, you can usually find me spending time around the Catholic Center or grabbing coffee around campus with friends.  I would also love to share with you the story of how I came to know Jesus Christ and fall more deeply in love with the faith of my childhood.  

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.

During my sophomore year of college, FOCUS missionaries arrived on my campus. Through these missionaries, I caught a glimpse of the joy and peace that they all found in the Lord. My heart yearned for the source of their passion, but it took a while for me to discover it. When I was a junior in college, I attended SEEK2015, which is a large conference hosted by FOCUS to help college students across the country grow in their faith. At SEEK, I encountered Jesus in a radical way, realizing that what I'd been missing in my life was a relationship with Him. Since that encounter with Christ, I've been striving to run to Him with everything that I have, bringing as many people with me as possible.

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 people. I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world - by building authentic friendships with students, bringing them to Jesus, and teaching them how to bring the people in their own lives to God. I've been constantly amazed by the different and beautiful 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.
