Why I Chose Lourdes: I came back to Lourdes University because I called this place home for four years! When I came here as a student, I had many other places to attend. I was even ready to go somewhere else! Yet, I visited the campus once and immediately fell in love with it. The fact of the matter is, there was no other place I could have gone and ended up as prepared and successful as I am today. If it was not for the faculty here, I would never have pursued a graduate education. If it was not for the Franciscan Sisters here, I would not have jump started my faith. If it was not for the students here I would not have found one of my best friends. Needless to say, I do not know where I would be today if I had not gone to Lourdes University. It is without a doubt a life changing experience. I want to share that with everyone I can. That is why I chose Lourdes.
Hobbies and Interests: I am a very outdoorsy person. I love nature and everything that it has to offer. During 9 months of the year you will see me fishing. I love to camp and hunt as well! I am also very adventurous and love to travel. I have been blessed to have traveled to thirteen different countries and counting! I am a die hard “Believeland” sports fan and am always looking forward to going to a game.
Favorite Quotes: “You never will be the person you can be if pressure, tension, and discipline are taken out of your life.” Mama Bear “We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.” T.S. Elliot.
