Being the youngest child has its perks. Growing up I always wanted to do what my older sisters were doing. They were so fun and cool! So when they got involved with CCO in University – I too wanted to join this fun club. They went white water rafting, hung out at coffee shops, and had really nice friends! Little did I know that CCO was so much more than just a fun club. When I finally got to University, CCO helped me discover my Catholic faith that made it relevant and life-changing. Saying yes to a relationship with Jesus changed my life. My faith was no longer about the “to-do’s”, checking boxes, or even about being the “perfect Catholic”. It transformed into being all about a personal, intimate, and life-giving relationship with Jesus Christ. This relationship is what my heart was made for.
In 2012, I joined CCO staff. I first served in Kingston, Ontario at Queen’s University for 2 years and then in Calgary Alberta at the University of Calgary for 5 years. In 2019, CCO asked me to serve as a campus missionary at the University of Winnipeg. Fun fact: I was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba. It’s been such a gift to serve in the city where I was born. I love my job for so many reasons! But my favourite thing about working as a campus missionary is: seeing lives change through the power of the Gospel. It never gets old! Seeing someone experience new life, freedom, healing, and joy is what brings joy to my heart and getting to co-labour with God and my missionary staff is what I love about being a CCO missionary.
