Where I serve

I am off on an adventure to give a chance of living life to the fullest through Christ to my own generation as they battle the secular world of college. I am stationed at Western Kentucky University and love serving the students in my home state!

My Story

Like me when I started college, these students are searching for a glimpse of genuine friendship, authentic love, and a chance to discover and be who God made them to be! Thankfully, my campus had FOCUS missionaries who invited me to a personal relationship with Jesus who loved me for who I was, who led me to discover how to be the best version of myself, and who helped me become a leader in the Catholic Church as we strive to change the world.  

Your Impact

I want to invite you to share in this mission with me! We are available to students 24/7, so we raise all our funds to cover expenses such as rent and food. Please consider joining me in God's work as a monthly contributor. Together we can reach out to the lost and build up faithful Catholic leaders to send out to change the world!
