My time working with Catholic Charities gave me invaluable insight into the needs and experiences of a population I otherwise would not have worked alongside. It is the relationships I built through this experience that granted me the ability to begin connecting individual problems to larger systemic issues, which helped to inform my decision to work as a community organizer in a post-grad service program. That experience then led me to my current role on staff with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps where I work to coordinate similar experiences for recent college graduates through experiential learning and relationship building. While I plan to devote the next few years learning and working as a Program Coordinator with the Jesuit Volunteer, I hope to eventually attend graduate school for a Masters in Public Administration with a concentration in Social Policy. As I continue my own discernment, I remain committed to living a lifestyle rooted in simple living, anti-racism, and community building.
