Where I serve

I am a first year missionary serving at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Boston, Massachusetts this year!

My Story

I am so grateful to have been raised up in the faith by my parents with my three brothers! Growing up, the faith a part of my life that I knew was important, but didn't exactly know why. It started to become my own right after I was confirmed when I started teaching Kindergarten CCD at my parish. There, I found that I really enjoyed sharing about the faith and started to understand that God made me for this! 

At George Mason University, I joined the Catholic Campus Ministry my freshman year, getting involved in a bible study and attending events. My experience with a small group and retreats and faithful people my age who willed my good and loved the Lord was so transformative and inspired me to want to give the same experience to others. I began a bible study my sophomore year, kept it going through COVID, but by my senior year, it was booming and the girls I walked with were transforming before my eyes! Praise God!

Jesus pursued me so intentionally my senior year, placing on my heart the desire to serve Him more fully and freely and gently breaking down all of the plans I thought I had perfectly crafted and replacing them with even more beautiful things! I am so excited to be a missionary for Christ and walk with college students in their journey to Heaven!

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.
