Tell us about yourself, your background, and why you are interested in serving.

I am originally from a small town outside of Detroit, where I was raised Catholic and attended a tightly knit community parish. I first discovered the Jesuits when I joined my campus parish in college. I was captivated by the Jesuits’ commitment to living out the Church’s mission for social justice, as well as my first experiences with Ignatian spirituality, which invigorated my prayer life. I moved to Baltimore in 2018, and I am currently a medical student at Hopkins. In seeking out a Jesuit parish, I was blessed to find a home at St. Ignatius. During my short time here, I have been fortunate to serve as part of both the Justice & Peace and Loaves & Fishes ministries. I have also had the privilege of sponsoring my partner as she converted to Catholicism through our RCIA program. This is a special community that creates a loving, welcoming environment for people from all walks of life and lives out its values in the way it seeks justice and partners with the surrounding community. St. Ignatius has played an incredibly important role in my young adult life. I would be honored to be a partner of and representative for all parishioners in our community to ensure that we cultivate an inclusive, engaging community where everyone can find a spiritual home.
