Hi, I'm Tally! I was born and raised in Denver Colorado. I love Jesus, making people laugh, and crossword puzzles. I'm happiest when I get to spend time outside, and I'll always say yes to a glass of red wine :)

Where I serve

In 2015 the Lord had big plans for my life as He called me not only to join the Catholic Church, but to serve His kingdom by quitting my job and becoming a FOCUS missionary. I served for 3 years at the University of California Los Angeles and am now back in my home state loving and leading the incredibly gifted men and women at the Colorado School of Mines. Life in Golden is full of adventure! With trips to the mountains, local breweries, or just hanging out on the commons with our students, I couldn't be imagine a better place for mission!

My Story

I was raised in a very faithful non-denominational Christian home and have loved the Lord my whole life. I began exploring the Catholic Church after college as I wrestled with the idea of one Truth. Surely each of the 33,000+ Protestant denominations couldn't all be right. I became captivated by the beauty and the reverence of the Mass and my soul longed to encounter Christ in an intimate and physical way in the Eucharist. If the Catholic Church was really the Church that Jesus came to establish in Matthew 16:18 then I knew I had to be a part of it. I was confirmed at the Easter Vigil in 2015. 

I decided to join FOCUS because I am desperately in love with Jesus and I want others to have the same joy and peace that He has given me. I want to show searching college students that they are known and loved by a God who desires a profoundly personal relationship with them. I am determined to bring authentic friendship and a deep love for Christ and His Church to a campus that is desperate for connection with others. I can't do much on my own, but Jesus working through me can change lives. 

It is a privilege to walk with men and women as they begin to discover who they are and start asking what the Lord wants for their lives. We are raising up a generation of thoughtful students who desire virtue and holiness and who we are equipping to help lead others as well. I truly believe that we can impact lives here on campus that will change our generation and eventually our culture.

Your Impact

In order to serve full-time, and be the most effective missionary I can, I need partners to stand beside me and support me both financially and with prayer. Jesus relied on the generosity of others to fund his own ministry and it's an honor for me to partner with you to do the same. Christ has charged us all with His Great Commission, and while I give by going I invite you to go by giving, and joining my support team!

By allocating a portion of your monthly tithe, you can participate in one of the most exciting Catholic outreach programs through a tax deductible gift that supports my full time missionary work. You are an essential part of this mission, and I am grateful for YOU!
