Where I serve

This year I am so excited to serve at the University of Colorado in Boulder, CO! Go Buffs!    

My Story

My experience at Clemson University was one of the most challenging and formative times of my life. I felt lost and alone without the comfort and security of my family and friends from St. Louis, MO. As I cried to family, friends, and total strangers, Jesus taught me some important lessons about suffering, the body of Christ, and receiving love. I found community among various campus ministries. I am forever grateful that these groups welcomed me, helped me to learn about the Bible, and encouraged me in virtue and faithfulness. At the same time, I read Born Fundamentalist, Born Again Catholic by David B. Currie and began attending daily Mass more frequently. Through these encounters with truth and beauty, I fell in love with my Catholic faith. Weaving these identities and groups together was sometimes challenging. I frankly thought that evangelization was something that "Protestants" did, but Catholics did not. 

It was not until I moved to Columbia, MO to attend graduate school at the University of Missouri that I saw the integration of “Protestant” evangelization and Catholicism. I saw Catholic young adults passionate about the Church, a personal relationship with Christ, and “making disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19). I knew Jesus was calling me to join this vibrant movement.

Your Impact

This mission would not be possible without the prayers and financial support of my mission partners, and I am so thankful for these sweet relationships. As Paul says in Romans 12: 4-5, “For as in one body we have many members, and not all the members have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ.” At this time, the Lord is calling me to be physically present on campus, and the family and friends supporting me are spiritually and financially present on mission. If you are interested in joining me, let me know the best way to reach you and we can set up an appointment. It would be an honor and a joy to share this mission with you!
