Where I serve

This is my second year serving as the Team Director at the University of Louisville! Originally from Indiana, I served one year with FOCUS' Digital Campus and two years at Wright State University before moving to the South!

My Story

Growing up Catholic, I was blessed to learn about Jesus and His Church from my parents, priests, and Catholic school teachers. In high school and college, I was challenged to put Christ at the center of my life, instead of merely letting Him be one aspect of it. Because individuals in my high school youth group and my college Newman Center loved me and intentionally invested their time in me, I came to desire a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. Along with this desire came a desire to invest in others so that they, too, could know the Lord in an intimate way.

As a student at Indiana University, I had the privilege of leading small group Bible studies and mentoring students one-on-one. Although FOCUS was not present on my campus, I became familiar with the organization through multiple avenues, including missionaries, other students, and FOCUS' national conferences. I decided to become a FOCUS missionary because I want to continue to invest my time in college students. My goal is for them to have an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ and to have the desire and ability to introduce others to the beauty, truth, and goodness of Christ and His Church.

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 some amazing people on this journey. Your support makes it possible for us to reach students all across the country so that their lives may be transformed by Christ. 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.
