Where I serve

I'm so thankful to be returning to Colorado State University for my third year as a FOCUS Missionary - GO RAMS! 

My Story

The start of college is undoubtedly challenging for everyone, and I was no exception.  Among many other temptations, I was tempted to turn away from what had defined me my entire life: my Catholic Faith.   I was repeatedly challenged in ways I wasn’t equipped to handle by myself.  I got to a breaking point in which I realized I had been living my entire life selfishly and for my own glory.  It was in these pivotal moments that FOCUS missionaries showed me Christ.  They loved me and taught me how to love.  Because of them, I learned what having a relationship with God looks like and how to share that gift with others.   I want more than anything to be God’s instrument of bringing His love, joy, and true freedom to the world!  

Your Impact

Please join me in fighting for the souls of my generation.  Together we can win them over to Christ!  Your prayers and support will make this mission possible.  Thank you for your generosity and know that you will always be in my prayers!
