Where I serve

God has called me to serve students at Columbia University.  A competitive Ivy League university in the heart of New York City, Columbia University's students are ambitious, intelligent, and thirsting to encounter the truth and goodness of Jesus Christ and His Church.  My mission is to share the gospel with Columbia University students at the most critical time in their lives, so that they can know and experience the deep love that God has for them

My Story

Everything changed for me when a FOCUS missionary invited me to join a bible study my freshman year of college at Temple University. While I had grown up Catholic, I had never heard the gospel in such an inviting and personal way. The FOCUS missionaries on campus showed me that it was possible to run towards Jesus and make Him the center of my life, even as a college student. Ever since then, I have been doing all that I can to bring my friends and classmates closer to Jesus. FOCUS gave me the tools I needed to lead a bible study for three years in college and go on three international mission trips, all of which helped me to further encounter Jesus and share His love. 

While I had plans of moving to Washington D.C. and working in politics after graduation, Jesus showed me that there is no task more urgent or important  than sharing His love and inviting college students to know Him. 

Now, as a full time missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. College students are constantly being told lies about who they are and what will make them happy. During my time in college, I witnessed extreme loneliness and isolation on campus.  My hope is that as a FOCUS missionary, I can be a witness to the fullness of joy that comes knowing you are a loved child of God.  

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.
