Where I serve

The Lord has called me to join Him in the Great Mission of spreading His word to college students. This year I will serve at the University of Pittsburgh as I finish out my Senior year. You can typically find me in the Newman Center talking with students or on the Cathedral Lawn playing spikeball! Wherever I am I'd love to meet you, so please reach out at any time! Go Panthers!

My Story

Coming into college my only desires in life were to succeed in the classroom and obtain the highest paying job once I graduated. I had absolutely no plans to grow in my Catholic faith, something that hadn't been a part of my life since I was baptized as a baby. Boy, did the Lord have other plans for me. Soon enough I found myself desiring a deep relationship with Him and I underwent a radical conversion of the mind and heart. I fell deeply in love with Christ and His Church, so much so that I received the Sacraments of Confirmation and First Holy Communion in April 2021 - Praise God! Ever since my conversion I have felt called to share the brilliant Light of God with others who are struggling to grow in faith, much like my own story. I truly believe the Lord led me to FOCUS in order to help students encounter Christ and pursue a more meaningful life than what the mainstream culture has to offer. I cannot wait to see what God has planned for this year!

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. Please reach out to me at 330-815-1990, or my email: [email protected] God Bless!
