Srishti Gupta
FOCUS Team Director

Hi y’all I grew up in India and converted to Catholicism in my first year at Georgia Tech! This is my sixth year as a FOCUS missionary. I served for two years at Georgia Tech and three at Georgia College. While St. Faustina is my confirmation saint, I also have a special love for St. Ignatius of Loyola!! Other than leading bible studies and nerding out over random Catholic things, I love stargazing, reading, getting coffee and trying out new foods!

Peyton Smith
FOCUS Missionary

Howdy! My name is Peyton Smith, and I am in my first year as a FOCUS Missionary. I’m from Dallas, Texas and I graduated from Texas A&M (gig ‘em) with a B.B.A in Finance. I love Thomas Aquinas and if you have a question pertaining to theology, I can probably explain in a much worse way what he had to say about the issue. There’s not much scenery in Texas so I am very excited to get out more and explore what the Georgia outdoors has to offer. I can’t wait to meet y’all!

Lauren Lewis
FOCUS Missionary

I'm originally from Bloomington, Indiana. I graduated from Indiana University in 2020, majoring in Non-Profit Management. I spent the last two years working as a missionary at Oklahoma State. When I’m not leading bible studies, you can find me driving around in my Subaru, drinking coffee, hiking or quoting a vine. I love doing almost any activity or sport outdoors.  My confirmation saint is St. Joan of Arc and I have a huge devotion to St. Rita of Cascia.

Devin Rankin
FOCUS Missionary

Hi, my name is Devin Rankin! I am from Tallahassee, FL and graduated from the University of Florida (go gators!) with a degree in Accounting. While at UF, I converted to Catholicism my freshman year, met my now wife Catherine, fostered a deep devotion to St. Joseph, and served as a yearlong FOCUS missionary intern among other great things. I particularly love soccer but enjoy playing any sport. I am excited to serve KSU full time this year, I hope to see you around!
