What is your favorite memory of being in school? Going to St. Finbar with a half dozen of my siblings every day. As if that weren't enough, we carpooled with a few others as well.
What do you value most about St. Patrick? I value our community’s overwhelming desire to help others in need. It speaks well of the community that our members occasionally keep their own family emergencies quiet, knowing that if word got out the whole parish family would overwhelmingly respond. I’ve been on the receiving end of this giving spirit, and can attest to its depth and generosity. It is awesome!
Who or what inspires you most? I am always inspired by witnessing selfless behaviors in others. It is a difficult world in which we live, and remembering to put God and others before yourself is unpopular and often unrecognized. I hope I never miss the opportunity to encounter Jesus in another person, and emulate their example.
What do you like to do in your free time? I read, go on road trips, and spend time with family.
What is the best advice you have ever received? Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
