Where I serve

I will be serving the students of West Chester University in Pennsylvania for my second year! You'll typically find me playing around on my guitar singing songs to our awesome God, or bumping a volleyball around! 

My Story

I was born into a Sunday Catholic family, not necessarily practicing, in the smallest state of them all Rhode Island. After being overwhelmed by God during Adoration at a Steubenville East Conference in 2008, I found myself on a journey seeking love and acceptance. Though I have sidetracked a number of times, I kept coming back to my first love, Love Himself.

These last 5 years of youth ministry have helped me uncover my passion for music and serving the Church, the young people especially. While growing in my skills and passion, I saw a need. My home parish flourished but there was a need all around for other parishes, people, and the world to know God in a deeper way and to be transformed by Him. A priest friend of mine introduced me to FOCUS one day over coffee and it sparked a strong sense of curiosity in my heart. I prayed for God to guide me and open the doors needed for me to do His will.  

And... as you might be able to tell, the next door read FOCUS.

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.
