Where I serve

I have the incredible opportunity to work for FOCUS Missions in Denver, Colorado serving the missionaries and students on the 150+ mission trips we send each year.  When I'm not in the office, I get to go on mission, and for the 2020 season, my job will take me to the Dominican Republic and Peru. 

Check out the FOCUS Missions website.

My Story

My story starts in a traditional Catholic home: mass every week and rosaries on long road trips.  In short, my faith was another box to check growing up.  That all changed when I started to encounter people my age living and loving their faith, and a key part of that experience was FOCUS.  Whether it was talking with missionaries, meeting other college students, going to a conference, or serving on a mission trip, I would not be where I am today without these people showing me who Jesus is.  That inspired me to be a missionary, and it is what motivates me to create opportunities for individuals to encounter Christ today.  

Your Impact

Without your support, I can't do my job.  It's that simple.  Your donation allows thousands of college students to go on mission every year with one of the safest and largest Catholic missions organizations in the world.  It provides training for campus missionaries leading trips, creates transformative experiences for participants, and service to those most in need.  If you are interested in hearing more and would like to partner with my work, email me at [email protected]

Thank you for your help!
