Where I serve

Last year, I served at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. For my second year with FOCUS, I will be serving at the University of South Dakota (USD) in Vermillion, South Dakota! Go Yotes! 

My Story

I decided to become a FOCUS missionary after the amazing college experience I had at the University of Nebraska - Omaha. The FOCUS missionaries at my Newman Center showed me how to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, form authentic friendships, and invite others to do the same. Toward the end of college, it became clear to me that I had a deep desire to help college students encounter Jesus Christ. I want them to encounter Him in a unique and profound way. I was blessed to experience the love of Jesus Christ through my FOCUS missionaries, and I want to share that 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 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 would love to schedule an appointment with you. I'd be honored to share this mission with you!
