Where I serve

I am embarking on a new journey within FOCUS on the Alumni Mobilization team as an Alumni Relations Specialist. I will be managing a few cities where our missionary and student alumni are located. I will be coaching them and hosting events to build them up so they can continue to be spiritually fed and to be on mission in their parishes and workplaces.

My Story

I was born and raised Catholic, but it wasn't until I went on a Steubenville Youth Conference my junior year of high school where things started to change for me. I always knew about God, but I didn't really know him personally, and that's what changed at this conference. After being impacted so deeply by Steubenville, I attended a teen discipleship week centered around prayer and Theology of the Body. That week really helped me actually channel my encounter with Christ into a growing and continual relationship with Him.  

I then decided to pursue a double-major in Theology and Communications at Franciscan University of Steubenville. I was inspired to work for the Church, I just didn't know in what capacity. I had worked for the Steubenville Conference Office as a video editor and graphic designer the Summer leading up to my senior year of college and for my whole senior year. I had initially thought my place in the New Evangelization was going to be behind a computer, generating beautiful and engaging content. As my time went on there, I realized that even though what I was generating was impacting people in some way, I desired to be with them. I desired relational ministry that would lead to deep transformation in the lives of others. Then I became a FOCUS Missionary.

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead everyone I encounter to Christ. My life has been transformed and continues to be transformed by Jesus, and I greatly desire for others to know the transformation and healing that comes from having a relationship with Jesus. I think in my new role I have a wonderful opportunity to help ensure what we are doing on campus gets to the parish,a and the rest of the world while also supporting our alumni who have made countless sacrifices for the Gospel. I am honored to work to give more to our alumni than we would ever ask of them. I am honored to be a missionary to our alumni.


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 with FOUCS. 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.
