Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at the University of Wisconsin - Platteville. Go Pioneers!

My Story

I am blessed to have been born and raised Catholic. I grew up knowing God was good but never fully understanding the depths of His love. When my grandpa passed away my first semester of college, I was shook to the core and found myself wrestling with the goodness of His plan and thirsting for genuine community. Over the following months, by the grace of God, I encountered that community at the Newman center at the University of Cincinnati. Being surrounded by fellow students who were genuinely themselves and radiating with joy that could only come from Jesus Christ gave me the courage to make radical changes in my life and slowly turn from sin while running towards the Father. I fell in love with Jesus through His presence in the Eucharist and realized my true identity as a beloved daughter of God. 

Thanks to a FOCUS missionary, I didn't have to walk this new life of faith alone and as a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students 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 on campus.
