Where I serve


Wow, I did not expect the year that I had, but having made it through year one of staff, I am so thankful for being sent to California State University Fullerton. The growth that I was able to experience, as well as the relationships I was able to make made it worth every difficult moment that I faced. I never expected to be called to another year in California, but I am very excited to be headed about 80 miles south, to San Diego State University. Go Aztecs! Please pray for me and my team, especially our two new first-years, as we embark on this mission this next school year. 

My Story

I never imagined in my wildest dreams that I would be giving up two years of my life to a mission like this. However, I believe that God has used my upbringing and college experience to grow and shape me, to reach out and bring others to our Savior. As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. I am a convert, and the fact that I have such a role in fulfilling the New Evangelization leaves me speechless every time I think about it. I love my Catholic faith, and FOCUS is an amazing opportunity to put what I have grown to understand into action.

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!
