Before entering the convent on November 1, 2018, I worked as a Spanish teacher. I taught for two years at Corpus Christi School in Bloomington, Illinois and then for one year at St. Matthew Catholic School in Champaign, Illinois. It was there that I met the Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George.
When I moved to Champaign, I was not actively discerning religious life, but God placed the thought very persistently into my head and heart after meeting the Sisters. As I visited and grew to know the Community more, I found that so much inside of me resonated with our Franciscan spirituality. I was also deeply struck by the charism of "seeking to make the merciful love of Christ visible."
The Lord has greatly blessed me throughout my life, and I trust that He will continue to lead and guide me in this new adventure!
