Where I serve

It's been a great gift to serve as a missionary at the University of Connecticut. On campus, I serve with four other incredible missionaries: Erinn, Monique, Micaela, and Seth. We've been tasked with sharing and living the gospel with over 30,000 Huskies. Please keep us in your prayers!

My Story

I never thought I'd end up here! As a college student, I anticipated a career in neuroscience and medicine. However, my heart quickly began to turn, and soften to the Father's promptings, once I began to enter into a deeper relationship with Christ and the Church through a vibrant campus ministry at Duke University. Through the authentic friendships and community life, I went on retreats, joined a bible study, and found myself longing for an intimate relationship with God--one that I longed, and am now blessed, to share with others. 

Your Impact

During my time in Catholic school, I thought I had my faith figured out. It took the gentle invitation of many friends and campus ministers to draw me out of my complacency into intentional discipleship and a life of prayer. 

Relationship reorients our horizons. I need your help, your partnership in prayer and financial support, in order to continue to invite others into the relationship worth living for, the relationship that Christ willed to die for us to embrace.
