Where I serve

My freshmen year in college I was deeply impacted by Christ. I was moved by his presence in the Eucharist and through the Sacraments. Throughout the following years I opened myself up to Him and His grace. As he slowly transformed me, I knew he wanted me to share this with my peers who wanted to live a fulfilling life. I responded in small ways that eventually led me to apply to be a missionary. This time in college is crucial as we make big life choices, discern what we want life to look like and ask hard questions. It is such a gift to be able to bring souls to Jesus and his Church at such an important point in peoples lives! Being a Team Director has been a gift to cast vision to a team of missionaries who are striving to make Christ known on campus.

My Story

As a young adult in early college I had a lot of ideas of what life should look like and did not know how I was going to get there. I was raised Catholic and knew faith was important but still didn't know how it applied to my everyday life. During my freshmen year I was faced with the reality that my actions and who I claimed to be was not the same person. I started to seek Christ in fellowship and prayer. That summer I came to understand the fullness of Christ in the Eucharist and his love for me at that moment in my life. It propelled me to dive deeper into my Catholic faith. I could not keep it to myself; I HAD to share this with everyone. As I came to understand Christ's mission to evangelize the world I knew I couldn't sit on the sidelines and felt him calling me to take an active role in His mission. This propels me everyday to seek him and share him with everyone I meet. 

Your Impact

The spiritual and financial support from mission partners is how I am able to do Christ's mission. As a missionary, I fully fundraise my salary and need the support of generous mission partners like you so I can share Christ with college students who need to know the fullness of Christ's love.  If you are interested in joining me on mission through your support or even just hearing about what I do on the college campus, I would love to meet up with you in person or talk on the phone. I'd be honored to share this mission with you!
