Where I serve

I am so excited to be moving to Austria this year to serve at the University of Vienna! My life as a missionary consists of bible studies, one-one-one mentorships, community building events, and on campus outreach. By being able to form true and intentional friendships with students we strive to help them become deeply rooted in Christ so that they can go out and bring the gospel to others. 

My Story

Growing up in San Antonio I was incredibly blessed to be a part of a very Catholic and supportive family that provided me with a strong foundation for my faith. However, when I arrived at the University of Texas as a freshman in college I quickly began to realize I didn’t know a lot about the faith or what it meant to have a true and authentic relationship with Christ. After struggling my first few semesters on my own, I finally realized that if I pursued a true relationship with Christ and put that first then everything else in my life would fall into place. A friend of mine already in FOCUS reached out to me and began showing me how to authentically live a Christ-centered life. Through her example and the example of the FOCUS missionaries I was able to begin to fully embrace receiving Christ and sharing him with others. After attending the annual national FOCUS conference in 2014 I became enthralled with the mission of sharing Christ with others.  

Your Impact

Without mission partners like you I would not be able to radically serve these women that I will be working with. College is a time where most people are “finding who they are” and so it is a perfect time to show these young men and women that they can find their identity as children of God! As a missionary I fundraise 100% of my mission budget. It is through your prayers and financial support that this mission that God has called me to is even possible! 
As FOCUS missionaries, we also offer up a daily holy hour, along with a Rosary and daily Mass for students and mission partners. I would be overjoyed to pray for you and your prayer intentions. Please email me with prayer requests or to join my newsletter mailing list at [email protected]

Know, Love and Serve God

We encounter God in an intimate relationship through daily prayer, the sacraments and the Scriptures.

By building genuine friendships, we meet students on a deeper level.

Teach Others to Share Christ

We teach students how to share the gospel, who in turn teach other students how to pass it on …
