I first discovered my love for philosophical and theological inquiry as an undergraduate at Penn State, majoring in Human Development and Family Studies. It became clear to me that human beings are extraordinarily and wonderfully complex creatures that can only reach their proper fulfillment when they are in a right relationship with their Creator. This awareness led me to pursue an MA in Theology at Franciscan University, where I fell more deeply in love with Jesus Christ and decided to discern a vocation with the Monks of Saint Vincent Archabbey. While the monastery would not prove to be my permanent home, I am certainly grateful for the knowledge and experience I gained in the school of Saint Benedict. Ultimately, it was in the Religion Department at Oakland Catholic High School that I finally realized the vocation that God had been calling me to all along.
"The best thing about Oakland Catholic is that Jesus Christ is the center of everything we do."
