Where I serve

I am a first year missionary in my beautiful home state of Colorado at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs. Go Mountain Lions! 

My Story

Growing up in the Catholic church, I had a good foundation of faith from Catholic schooling as I entered into college at Colorado State University. I wanted what most 18 year olds want when they go to college: the ability to do whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted, however I wanted. I was in many different social groups, which on paper would look like I was living the college dream, but in reality, I felt like I could hardly keep my balance. One of the social groups I was in was a Bible study that I joined after meeting a FOCUS missionary, and it was this Bible study that continually stood out to me. Thanks to accountable friendships and a holy community that so tangibly expressed the love of Christ to me, I decided to stop trying to live the “normal” college dream and start following where my heart was calling me to go— to Jesus Christ and His Church.

Your Impact

We are the one body of Christ, and no matter how hard I try, I cannot do this mission alone. Joining FOCUS has given me the opportunity to collaborate with the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to reach as many people possible for Jesus Christ. I've been blessed and am incredibly grateful for the people who have said yes to walking on this journey with me. If you would like to join me on this mission, I would love to set up an appointment with you. You can contact me at [email protected] I'd be thrilled to share this mission with you! 

And, if you're a student, please reach out! I'd love to meet you :)
