Welcome to Campus Ministry at Saint Louis University! Campus Ministry is part of the Division of Mission and Ministry and supports the mission of the University in the pursuit of truth for the greater glory of God and for the service of humanity. To this end, Campus Ministry welcomes all students, regardless of faith orientation, to our office and to our programs. We encourage you to explore your faith and spirituality, engage our Campus Ministers, and participate in our programs and opportunities through our office and our website. Please feel free to stop by our office at any time. We welcome you and welcome your interests! On a personal note, I am originally from Chicago and have worked in student affairs administration as well as for a Catholic non-profit in Milwaukee, WI. My favorite retreat house is the Jesuit Retreat Center in Oshkosh where I can keep attune to God's desires through the silence. My two cats, Charlie and Bernard, also made the trip to St. Louis with me and in my spare time I love to read, listen to music, and cook.

Hello! I am excited to join SLU Campus Ministry. I grew up in Wyoming as one of five kids. Before leaving home I learned to cook and love outdoor adventures. Between there and here, I studied International Politics at Georgetown University, traveled in the Americas and India, worked in prison ministry in Belize with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps, and learned to love scripture while studying theology in Berkeley. At SLU I coordinate Campus Ministry's immersion programs, the Urban Plunge Retreat, and other opportunities to engage the life of faith in works for justice. I am also interested in exploring how our efforts for justice nourish the spiritual life. Beyond work and social justice, I enjoy cooking, building things, and exploring my new home in St. Louis.

Hi friends! I grew up in a small town near New Orleans and have been in Campus Ministry at SLU for seven years, and I love the work I do and being at SLU. I coordinate a number of programs including the Nature Retreat, Monday Maniacs, the Advent and Lent daily reflection websites, and the Campus Ministry website and Facebook page. I am very fortunate also to coordinate Campus Ministry's Intern Program and to lead the spring break trip to the Navajo Nation, where I lived for several years before coming to SLU. I also advise a myriad of student groups, from Habitat for Humanity to the Wilderness Adventure Club to Big Brothers Big Sisters. My wife Cristina and I love St. Louis and are always looking for new and exciting places in the city.

Although my day job is in the medical device industry, I have had the pleasure of working for campus ministry as the the music coordinator for the better part of 20 years. My ministry started when at the age of 10 I first took an interest in the church organ. I applied my budding piano skills, taught myself a few chords and started regularly playing the 7:30am mass and all-school masses at St. Joe's in Cottleville, MO. Over the years, SLU's Mass Choir has grown from a small ensemble for Sunday evening student liturgies to 50-60 singers and 12-15 pieces in the band/orchestra. I am proud to have been part of the core planning team for the Papal Youth Rally in 1999, music director of Youth Sing Praise (Belleville, IL) in 1998 and 1999, and music minister for hundreds of weddings, funerals, and services over the past 30+ years. I am serving presently on the liturgy planning committee for the National Association of Pastoral Ministers' national convention which is going to be in St. Louis next summer.

I enjoy hanging out with my husband Brandon, our daughter Ruby and two dogs, Lucy and Millie. I enjoy reading copiously, writing sporadically, long division, going to the occasional concert, knitting, and bike riding.

Namaste Billikens! I am delighted to join the Campus Ministry staff this year and be back on a college campus once again as one of the campus ministers in Griesedieck Hall. Born and raised in Missouri, my hometown is Jefferson City, but I have enjoyed living in St. Louis for the last two years where I worked at a local Catholic Publishing Company as an acquisitions editor. Prior to that I spent a year with the Salesian Lay Mission Program where I served in Tumkur, India and Kathmandu, Nepal. My graduate degree is from the University of Dayton where I also worked as a graduate assistant campus minister in residence life. From 2001 to 2006, I was the full time campus minister at the Newman Center on Mizzou's (UMC) campus. My leisurely activities include reading, writing, drinking coffee, gardening, running, travel, and spending time in the great outdoors.

Hello! This will be my second year working at SLU and I am thrilled to be working with in the Micah Progam and Campus Ministry Interns this year and in Marguerite and Pruellage Halls! I grew up Cincinnati, OH and began my journey at SLU as an undergrad when I studied Psychology and Theology. After a year as a campus ministry intern and a couple years working in a parish, I decided a career in campus ministry was the right path for me. I am also on the leadership team for the Fresh Look retreat, facilitate a CLC, coordinate music for our monthly Taizé prayer service, and help with weekly Spanish Mass. When I'm not working I love exploring the city on my bike, taking runs through forest park, getting coffee/brunch with friends, reading poetry, enjoying the local music scene, and traveling all over the world.

I am beginning my 8th year at SLU - all 8 in Campus Ministry. My three sons and I live in south city. My boys are a freshman in college, a junior in high school and a 5th grader. I attended Quincy University and SLU's School of Professional Studies. I enjoy running, tennis, basketball, baking, bike trail riding, working in the yard, most things outdoors, car travel and reading (especially period novels and biographies). Some interesting facts about me are that I can walk on stilts, have never had my ears pierced, love the Kiss Cam, watch Downton Abbey, can parallel park like no one else, and play on a women's basketball team. The best part of my job is meeting and working with students. Please stop by to say hi.
