After my conversion, I had a strong drive to learn more about who God is, so I decided to pursue a master’s in theology. I started at Franciscan University, and then transferred to Christendom Grad school where I received an MA in theology, specializing in catechetics. I thought I was done with school, but God seemed to think that was pretty funny because He made it clear that I needed more education. So I attended the Dominican House of Studies in DC, and received the STB.
Whenever God gives us gifts, they’re both for our own sake, and for the sake of helping others. That’s how I see the gifts that God has given me in my education and past experience teaching people about God and working in religious education and faith formation.
