Where I serve

I'm so excited to be returning back to the University of Connecticut, beginning my third year with FOCUS! I'm very grateful to be serving with my wonderful team of four other missionaries here in Storrs. 

My Story

In college, I encountered the reality of the world today: people are fighting a battle for their souls and most don't even know about it. During my experience in college, I attempted to seek my identity in friendships, academics, and anything that looked enticing. But Jesus wanted more for me. Because of missionaries on my campus, I experienced the importance of authentic friends, divine intimacy, and a desire to live abundantly. 

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. 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’ 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.

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.

Know, Love and Serve God

We encounter God in an intimate relationship through daily prayer, the sacraments and the Scriptures.

Build Virtuous Friendships

By building genuine friendships, we meet students on a deeper level.

Teach Others to Share Christ

We teach students how to share the gospel, who in turn teach other students how to pass it on …
