What is your favorite memory of being in school? My favorite memory was the excitement of the first day of school. I enjoyed all my teachers and looked forward to learning. I appreciated all the different teaching styles.

What do you value most about St. Patrick? When I first visited St. Patrick’s, I felt the warmth of everyone I met. My second visit, I was touched by the flowers to Mary and the invitation to the Consecration of Mary. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve and contribute to this kind and faith-filled family.

Who or what inspires you most? My family inspires me to be the best person I can be to all.

What do you like to do in your free time? I enjoy any time with family and friends, arts and crafts of all kinds, and spending time outdoors.

What is the best advice you have ever received? My father and father-in-law always said and modeled “Whatever you do, Give it 100%."
