Hey! My name's Mary. I'm a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

I am so excited to be serving the students of Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia as a first year missionary!

Team Virginia Tech, 2022-2023

My Story

During my time as a student at Harvard University, God patiently and beautifully went after my heart and led me into deeper relationship with Him.  He gave me an experience of authentic friendship with a FOCUS missionary that transformed the way I desired to love others.  God also worked through her to invite me into a life of prayer and divine intimacy, helping me to understand my identity as His beloved daughter who was created to spend eternity with Him in Heaven, and forming my heart to spread the truth and joy of the Gospel.  Now, as a missionary myself, I am privileged to be able to walk with the students of Virginia Tech as the Lord also draws them closer to Himself. 

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.
