Where I serve

I am very excited to share that I am serving our proud and strong sailors at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland! Anchors Away!

My Story

Like many others I was raised Catholic and spent 14 years going through Catholic school education. I had many friends, went to Church on Sundays, yet hid so much pain beneath the surface. I went to Jesus to grief the loss of so many loved ones, but in this I closed myself off from others. I led them to believe I was always happy, and I was determined to stay that way and fit in with everyone else.

I attended the University of Pittsburgh and immediately put my faith on the back burner. I wanted to fit in with the people in my life and that did not include Jesus. I then met a FOCUS missionary who invited me to a Bible study, and I gradually learned things had to change. I came to realize everything I desired I could find in Christ, and I didn't need to walk the path alone. A missionary held my hand, guided me to Christ's love, and showed me how to invite others into this love. I truly loved my life and the people in it! I now have friendships that are deeply rooted in Christ and will last a lifetime, and a burning desire to share this love with others.

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.
