Where I serve

Right now, God has called me to serve with FOCUS on the Sponsorship Team. Pope Saint John Paul II once said, "Life with Christ is a wonderful adventure," and what an adventure these last few years been! After graduating from the University of Illinois in 2011, I spend the next two years serving at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln (UNL), the following three years launching new FOCUS programs at the University of California - Santa Barbara (UCSB) and the University of California - Los Angeles (UCLA). I have participated in and led several mission trips, alongside college students from across the country in Latin America, South America, and Europe, and it has been such a gift to see the Lord work in the lives of the students on campus and abroad. I have a pretty cool story about how Jesus has changed my life -- I think you should hear it sometime! Come find me and I'd love to share it with you. :)

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. 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. I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world. I've been constantly amazed by the different 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.
