Where I serve

The Lord has invited me to continue to serve with FOCUS for a third year! As hard as it is to leave campus and the students I served at Pitt, I am very excited to begin my new position as a Program Director for the Parish Outreach Team. FOCUS aims to launch college students into lifelong Catholic mission. Serving for two years on a college campus has taught me so much, and now I have the opportunity to be a part of that lifelong mission! My job will primarily be to serve and support our full-time Parish Missionaries who are located all over the country. By supporting me, you are supporting Parish Missionaries and the spreading of the Gospel in the American parish across the country!

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all people to Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world. I've been constantly amazed by the different souls I've encountered while serving with FOCUS. 

While I was a student at the University of Florida, I met a FOCUS missionary who loved me well, taught me to pray, and challenged me to become the daughter of God that I am created to be! Through her example, I grew to love Christ more and more and grew to love sharing Him with others. I joined staff with FOCUS because I want to bring Christ to the world and the world to Christ. My first two years on staff were incredibly transforming.  Serving at the University of Pittsburgh taught me how to love better, how to share the Gospel more boldly, and how I should be using my gifts to glorify the Lord. All of my experiences over the last two years have led me to this present moment, where now I get to serve missionaries in the parish!  

This is the Parish Outreach Team! Praise God for these incredible people. Please keep them in your prayers.

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.
