Where I serve

Last year, God called me to serve the college students at the University of Pittsburgh and I am so excited to continue serving there this year. The city is so beautiful and has so much to do! One of my favorite things to do is taking students off campus to explore the many different coffee shops and restaurants around the city. There are also so many incredibly beautiful, and historic churches to go to. Pittsburgh is a very Catholic-rich area and I am so incredibly blessed to live and serve in such an amazing community. 

My Story

I grew up Catholic and was blessed to attend Catholic Schools from Pre-K all the way up through high school. Throughout my life, I have always known who God is but it wasn't until college that I began to explore a true personal relationship with the Lord. I joined a FOCUS bible study my Sophomore year of college and as I became friends with the people in my Catholic community I began to notice how differently they were living and that was attractive to me. I began attending more events, praying more regularly, eventually started a bible study of my own! My faith continued to grow and so did my desire to share the joy that I have found in a deep and personal relationship with Jesus. As a missionary, my greatest desire is that the students I work with come to know and love Jesus in an intimate way and that their hearts are set on fire with the desire to share the Gospel with everyone they meet. My life has been 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. 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’ example to find the best method of reaching the world. I've been constantly amazed by the different souls I've encountered on campus.

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.
