Hi, friends! I’m Em. 

 

I grew up in the beautiful state of Nebraska and attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where I earned a degree in theatre performance from the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film. With the help of a FOCUS missionary and the blessing of being cast as Joan of Arc while in school, I discovered what it meant to have a personal relationship with Christ, and it changed everything. Today, I'm in my fifth year with FOCUS. On campus, I served as a missionary and then as a team director at New York University. I am currently a member of the FOCUS Recruitment team, speaking to students across the country about the impact young adults can have within the Church.

Artists of the world, may your many different paths all lead to that infinite Ocean of beauty where wonder becomes awe, exhilaration, unspeakable joy.

- Saint Pope John Paul II

 
 

Saint John Paul II's letter to artists changed my perspective on creating. It's given me "the why". Art moves people and I believe we are called to move them closer to our Lord. I hope my work calls you to something greater!  

 

love,
