"Certainly a life lived by faith resembles more an expedition up a mountain than a quiet evening spent reading in front of the fire; but anyone who embarks upon this expedition knows and feels more and more, that the adventure to which it invites us is well worthwhile" -Pope Benedict XVI

Where I serve

I work as part of the Missions Team at the Denver Support Center.  Working with a team of incredible missionaries, we facilitate Mission Trips around the world where students have the opportunity to encounter Jesus in the poor.  Sometimes it takes going halfway around the world to understand what it means to see Jesus in our neighbor.  

My Story

Growing up, Catholicism was a chore, simply a box to check. But during my time in high school I started to meet Catholics who were my own age who weren’t just fulfilling their Sunday obligation of being Catholic, but loved Jesus Christ, loved His Church, and were eager to share this joy with others. I was drawn in by their conviction. What was different was the life and joy that these people shared with me. My faith soon grew to be so much more than a task to be completed, instead I experienced firsthand the joy I’d seen in these Catholics who inspired me to dive deeper into my faith. And that is what I hope to share with college students across the country. 

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 as a missionary. 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.
