Exploring religious life today: one discerner’s story

God has nudged me in small ways and big ways.


Stephanie is of the first generation in her family to receive a bachelor's degree. She attended Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio, Texas. There she worked for Campus Ministry, attended an immersion experience in Monterrey, Mexico, and renovated houses in the ninth ward after Hurricane Katrina. She has also served in the Jesuit Volunteer Corps. Stephanie worked in higher education for nine years while volunteering at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church on the Westside of San Antonio. In 2019, she received her master's degree in Early Childhood and has since taught first grade with the Lakota children on the Pine Ridge reservation through the Red Cloud Volunteer Program. In her free time, Stephanie loves to watch movies, listen to music, read and be outdoors by herself or with friends.
