Where I serve

The Lord has called me to Northern Arizona University for my first year on mission! Sharing life with students in Flagstaff, Arizona is such a joy, from hiking, skiing, and sampling all of the eclectic coffee shops. You can spot me long boarding through campus, eating in the memorial union food court, a work-out class at the HLC, or praying a rosary on the lawn with a student.  I am convinced I have more Lumberjack pride than your average NAU student...GO JACKS!


My Story

FOCUS changed my life by re-introducing me to Jesus Christ when I was a freshman in college. After going through a difficult breakup, I didn't have many people to turn to. Luckily, a friend of mine and a FOCUS missionary--looking at you Joshua--helped me establish a regular routine of prayer, daily mass, and frequenting confession.

Why did I say yes to being a FOCUS missionary? Because we all desperately need deep a friendship with Jesus through prayer, the sacraments, and encountering others. FOCUS has given me the opportunity to tangibly partake in the work of the New Evangelization, and invite others into relationship with 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'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.
