Where I serve

Jesus has called me to minister and serve college students! I am a first year missionary at DePauw University in Indiana! I have never been more excited to live in a new place with a new group of people! You can probably find me hanging out with students at my house with a cup of coffee, finding new thrift stores, St. Pauls, or walking on some metro park trails with the students! Christ has changed my life in some incredible ways and I cannot wait to bring Him to the students here.

Meet My Team

I've finally met my team and they are an incredible group of people to work with! I am blessed to be on mission with them and couldn't have asked for a better team. Greencastle Indiana has a special place in my heart already. 

Friends On Mission

My best friend Teressa Kenny is a first year missionary this year as well! She is at the University of Toledo in Ohio right next door to our Alma Mater, BGSU! Please pray for her on her journey as well! 

My Story

I grew up in the faith, but never really understood what it meant to be a practicing Catholic. My junior year at Bowling Green State University was when I first encountered a FOCUS bible study after some really challenging life events. I was able to encounter the Lord through this FOCUS bible study and a retreat at my home parish that ignited my heart into finally knowing the Lord's love for me. After that, there was no turning back. I dove right in and wanted everything there was to do with being Catholic. I was being discipled by an incredible woman, leading my own bible study, and discipling some other incredible women the rest of my time in college and I couldn't be more thankful for the opportunities God had given me. 

Not long after was when I felt God tugging on my heart to give my whole life to having a zeal for the souls on the college campus, a soul just like mine that was longing for Jesus. I really desired other students to experience the same reversion that I did in my heart and before I knew it, I applied to be a FOCUS missionary to fulfill that deep longing in my missionary heart. 

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead as many people as I can to Christ, especially the lost souls of students on campus. My life has been completely and beautifully 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 through intentional and loving relationships. 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 and I will never stop!

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, being a full time missionary, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me be fully available for this delightful 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.
