I was raised in Round Rock, Texas and attended St. William Catholic Church. Growing up, I always admired the priests at my parish, and as an altar server people would tell me that I would make a good priest. I started discerning the priesthood more seriously in high school, attending several discernment events hosted by my diocese. After I graduated high school in 2019, I answered the call to be a missionary with NET ministries. My discernment continued, and once I finished my time as a missionary, I applied to enter seminary. Thank you so much for your prayers!
