Where I serve

God has called me to serve the midshipmen at the United States Naval Academy! Dan and I are excited to be staying in Annapolis and grow a little roots.  Having the opportunity to serve those who serve our country is a huge honor.  The military is a unique environment where faith may or may not thrive, so my teammates and I are striving to equip the midshipmen with good habits and skills to help them flourish in their relationship with God even when their environment is destitute. 

My Story

I came into college thinking I knew my Catholic identity, but found myself challenged and saw that my shaky foundation was cracking beneath me.  This actually caused me to fall away for a little and eventually to live an unfulfilling lifestyle. Thankfully a dear friend reached out to me, though I didn't know her well at the time, and showed me authentic friendship and a whole lot of love!  She, along with other great friends helped me see the beauty of the Church and what means to be Catholic and more importantly a daughter of God.  I had no idea Jesus was a personal God who loved me infinitely as I am.  This paradigm change brought me new life and joy, so much so, that I had to share it with others!  This year being married has helped me grow in ways I never imagined.  I look forward to diving deeper with Dan and the students this year!
