I am originally from Rapid City, South Dakota. The past two years I have been at the University of Mary in Bismarck, North Dakota where I was studying Catholic Studies and Communication. After serving here for the year, I plan to go back to UMary and finish my studies. I enjoy longboarding, cliff jumping, hiking, and cooking & eating new types of food!
Growing up, I had often been a part of several youth groups in my parish. I found myself drawn to youth ministry and started helping and leading several youth groups and Confirmation. I made some of my best friends and met some the most influential men and women in my life from these youth groups. After finishing school, I plan to go and be a youth minister for whatever parish Christ is calling me towards.
When I was told about Star, I immediately felt a calling towards this ministry. After some discernment I decided that I should take a year off from school to come and serve this parish. I am excited and grateful to have been given the opportunity to minister to this area. I will be serving the Highschool program, Ignite. So, if you want to come, please feel free to come by and join us in growing in relationship with each other and, most importantly, growing in our relationship with Christ!
