Where I serve

God has called me to serve my fourth year on staff, and my second year as Team Director, at the University of Louisiana-Lafayette. I am very excited to be leading our team of six UL missionaries in spreading the Gospel on campus and forming lifelong disciples of Christ. 

My Story

As a missionary, I truly believe God draws near to us at all times and in all places, and I desire to share the truth of His unconditional love with all the souls He entrusts to me. In college, I often saw my faith as something strictly personal that did not need to be shared, but through involvement in FOCUS and my own University Catholic Center, I became convicted of the urgency of sharing my faith. My senior year of college I was able to put this into practice through leading a Bible study and encountering women in Discipleship. Introducing them to the person of Jesus brought them a profound joy and as I saw their encounter with Him resonate in their lives, I discovered that the greatest joy in knowing Jesus can be found in sharing Him. 

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 am excited to partner with others to accomplish this mission. As Mother Teresa once said, "All are called to mission...some give by going, and others go by giving." 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.
