My objective is to apply my skills and experience in a Catholic volunteer setting. I would like to live in an intentional community where I can both offer and receive support living out my Catholic Faith. I feel that I have much that I can offer in terms of skills. Living and working with other volunteers will challenge me in ways that I cannot foresee, yet know will lead to greater spiritual growth.


After graduating from Southern New Hampshire University with a degree in business, I left for South Korea to teach English. I have worked as an English instructor in South Korea for the past 9 years. In April I am heading off on a spiritual pilgrimage to Europe. I will be in Rome for the canonization ceremony of our Blessed Popes John Paul II and John XXIII. I will travel through Italy and then France, where I will have the privilege of participating in the annual Paris to Chartres Pilgrimage. I will finish my journey at the Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul in Lewiston, Maine. After that, I will focus my energy on finding a full-time volunteer position in a Catholic community.
