Where I serve

This year, the Lord is inviting me to serve the students at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville (go Pioneers!). You'll typically find me getting coffee with a student or hanging out at St. Augustine University Parish. I have a pretty cool story about how Jesus has changed my life -- I'd love to share it with you sometime! 

My Story

As I entered my freshman year of college, I loved Jesus but didn't know how to develop a deeper personal relationship with Him.  The first FOCUS missionary I encountered invited me on a retreat during the fall semester of freshman year, and after encountering Jesus through Eucharistic adoration, my life was changed.  I began to attend daily Mass and develop a daily prayer life, and I grew to better recognize my primary identity as a daughter of God.  I can't thank Jesus enough for giving me the gift of FOCUS during my college years!  Through the investment of the missionaries on my campus, I learned how to pray with Scripture and how to live out authentic discipleship, and my desire to share the gift of knowing Jesus only grew with time.  My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world. I've been constantly amazed by the different souls I've encountered on campus.  I would love to share some of the graces in my time on mission thus far.

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 on campus. 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.
