Where I serve

I have been bringing the Gospel to college students for 6 years as a FOCUS missionary. Campuses I have served at are Tulane University (3 years), The University of Oklahoma (2 years), and am currently the Team Director for the FOCUS team at Wichita State University.

My Story

I am a Mother Angelica fan; she was a risk-taker. Ever since learning her story and how she founded EWTN in 1981, I've always been drawn to risk. Whether it was signing up for my first retreat, initiating a conversation with a stranger on a plane, or dropping the nets to join FOCUS, God has seemed to draw me through risk-taking. I grew up a cradle Catholic, but it wasn't until I signed up to go on a Catholic retreat during my junior year of college that I took a serious look at Jesus. Since then,  Jesus has given me abundant life and joy. After college I worked as a radiologic technologist in a hospital for 9 months. It was there that I knew I was being asked by Jesus to cast my net into the deep. In early May of 2014 I quit my job at the hospital I was working at and joined FOCUS. This is my sixth year on staff and I can't begin to list, describe, and explain all of the blessings that have come along with that "Yes Lord, at your word I will drop my nets" moment. Jesus continues to ask me to take risks, but He is never outdone in generosity. If I have learned anything in my life that's true, it is this; Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of all desire; He is the answer to the longings of every human heart.

"Apart from me, you can do nothing." -John 15:5

"Faith is one foot on the ground, one in the air, and a queasy feeling in the stomach." - Mother Angelica

"We've lost the theology of risk; we've lost guts. Unless you are willing to do the ridiculous, God will not do the miraculous." Mother Angelica

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 never go on mission alone; I plant the flag on campus in the name of my mission partners who are the backbone of everything that happens in this mission. If you are interested in partnering with me, please do not be afraid to contact me via phone or email to schedule an appointment. I'd be honored to share this mission with you. Let's go make disciples!
