Where I serve

God has called me to serve the student-athletes at Mount Saint Mary's University. Student-athletes hold a special place in my heart since they were "my people" in college. I can't wait to spend time getting to know more athletes and discover their unique identities in Christ! 

My Story

As a missionary, I desire to share the joy and adventure of living in relationship with Christ. I was fortunate enough to enter college with a Catholic education and a strong example of faith in my family. Praise God for that! It didn't take long for the excitement of college life and college soccer to pull me in several different directions. Gradually, my spiritual life became less and less of a priority and I didn't realize I was slowly falling away. I started to be convinced that if everyone else in this secular culture seemed fine without a spiritual life, maybe I would be fine without it too. Sophomore year, brought on new challenges and struggles. I wasn't fine after all! By my junior year, I was ready to truly pursue my faith and God sent FOCUS missionaries to Georgia College and State University, so I could do just that. At the first Mass of my Junior year, a FOCUS missionary introduced herself to me. Not long after, I was being led in prayer and involved in bible study. I experienced the love of God and received a deeper sense of my identity in Christ. I hope to share that experience with other students!

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.
