During Eucharistic Adoration at my first Rise Up conference as a student, I realized and understood for the first time that I could have a personal relationship with Jesus. Since then, it has been an adventure to get to know the Lord more and more; to let Him lead me, and to be amazed by all that He has done in my life – and the lives of others!

Since I started working for CCO in 2010, I have been serving in the Missions and Events Department at our head office. This means I get to be everything from travel agent to conference planner. A regular day can include international phone calls and marketing plans for our next Rise Up conference. There’s never a dull moment in our department!

The highlight of my role is, every year at Rise Up, watching students encounter Jesus in Eucharistic Adoration and restoring their relationship with God through the Sacrament of Confession. This part of our conference has a special place in my heart because it is where I encountered Jesus, and it is a privilege to witness the same thing happening in the lives of others.

Even though my role is not direct ministry, I still have opportunities to build into others, whether that means helping a student who is going on mission prepare to do their fundraising or leading faith studies with friends or people at my parish.

Being on staff, I have grown in my relationship with God, grown in leadership, and continue to be amazed how He provides for me through my support team.
