    In what ways did your Ursuline education prepare you for the work you’re doing now? 
    My years at Ursuline taught me how to seek God's Word for myself and know that nothing is impossible. I was surrounded by teachers and administrators that encouraged me to ask questions - especially when it came to matters of faith - and to find answers in the Bible. The more I sought the Word, the more I grew to know myself, and the bolder I became in all that I've done and am doing. I am passionate about teaching little ones that the Bible is the greatest adventure book they'll ever read and that Jesus is the greatest superhero they'll ever know. It’s because of those seeds planted at Ursuline that I'm able to do all that I do in my professional and ministerial life.

The curriculum developed my critical thinking and reasoning skills and challenged me in ways that allowed me to flourish. It was the beginning step that culminated in the attainment of my doctorate degree. An integral part of my Ursuline education was religion and the calling to be of service to others.  I wholeheartedly feel that my chosen career path as a clinical/forensic psychologist is my responding to that call and being of service to God’s children. At Ursuline, I learned to be a servant leader, to create my own path, and that girls rock!
