I come from a family of five.  Growing up, I had the opportunity to live in nine states.  While living in California, I met my high school youth minister, whose passionate witness to Christ in the Eucharist sparked my faith journey within the Church.  From there, the Lord led me to become a missionary at the Pines Catholic Camp, discern a religious order, and serve teens as a youth minister at St. Jude in Allen.  Seminary formation has challenged me to grow in numerous areas of my faith, increasing my love of the Lord and the priesthood.
