I have gained an amalgam of perspectives within the world of service, which developed in me a deep sense of empathy. As part of the Marianist Leadership Program, I was lucky to engage in countless hours of service at the Marianist Residence where I could help the brothers as a means of expressing gratitude, while also benefiting from their wisdom.

Father Jim Tobin, S.M., provided me with much needed spiritual guidance to navigate the complex and dynamic time that is college, playing a pivotal role in my spiritual development throughout my time at St. Mary’s University. I can proudly say that my relationship with God, as well as my sense of conviction, are both at a place I never thought possible largely due to Father Jim’s guidance.
